As for DeCastro, I love the guy and am all for fixing this OL I just don't see Jerry doing it. I think we go heavy after either Nicks or Grubbs and also I think Center is a much bigger need. \But the main reason I think we don't het DeCastro is that I have read and heard KC and Arizona is really interested in him and will take him in the 1st round.
Oh well, that'll be a shame if DeCastro is gone. I can't justify trading up from the mid-first round for a Guard. I''d consider it at Center or LT but not OG or RT.
To be honest, I'm not a big fan of paying a big FA salary for an OG. We went down that route with Bigg Davis and it didn't turn out all that well for us. I just don't think OGs usually make enough of a difference to be worth a premium salary although there are odd exceptions like Larry Allen and Steve Hutchinson and I don't think either of the players you mentioned are as good as those 2 guys.
I actually think that if DeCastro is gone we should drop down in the draft to the 20s and pick up an extra 2nd rounder. Then maybe we can draft two OGs with the four picks we have in the first 3 rounds. According to Wes Bunting, this is a very deep draft for OGs with several good prospects in the first 3 rounds available. We should also then have picks freed up to try and find a CB and an OLB/DE as well. We can hopefully then patch up the rest of our holes in FA.
