No one else that will be available at #14 will be considered the absolute BEST in the league at that position while at the same time being considered one of the BEST at that position that has come around in YEARS.
Luck is that way; no one here would blink at taking him if we had the chance.
But because DeCastro is a guard some turn their noses up at him?
JUST PLAIN STUPID
I agree. While I'm not going to call anyone stupid I will say in many reports I have seen DeCastro is looked at as one of the 3 top players in this draft. If he is at 14 I take him and would not blink an eye. I don't think it is over valuing the position of Guard especially when teams are getting a big push up our middle and here is a guy that can put an end to that. Keeping Romo up and healthy is a pretty critical job.
My rule of thumb avg players are a dime a dozen, great players you grab them when you get the chance regardless of the position they play
