What a crazy draft so far! So many solid players passed up who were high on the boards all off season long. The Steelers had the pick of just about anyone on offensive line. Talk about drooling. David DeCastro is just about the best guard to be in the draft and is out of Stanford. This could not have been a more perfect scenario for the Steelers.
The team desperately needed an offensive lineman and they certainly got one. The best one in fact. When was the last time the best position player in a draft was still available by #24? Can’t really say, but not in my most recent recollection. Winning. As right guard in college DeCastro is a very nimble footed guy and will be a huge asset to the offense from the start. Ben is probably so freakin’ happy right now.
I may be counting my chickens, but you can say goodbye to Kemoeatu. More on DeCastro and reactions from Steelers Nation over the next couple days. Be sure to tune into our podcast tonight to get more reactions from the rest of NPC.
