    “@CoachBillick: Stanford's David DeCastro is just as much a "sure thing" as both Luck and T. Richardson. Worthy of a top-15 pick...even as an interior OL.”

    Listen to the man Jerry!

    This is what I keep on hearing. There is no such thing as overkill on the offensive line.

    I would be VERY happy if we got DeCastro. It would almost make up for passing on Jackson, assuming DeCastro is there when we pick.

    Make this team as Romo friendly as possible. The guy has got hurt 3 of the last 4 years... come on...

    I think him giving the highest praise for a OG and still maxing out at only top 15 tells you something.

    Love DeCastro, but it's not like he's great value at 14, but maybe about fair value. I think we go defense

    First time I've heard "sure thing" and "top 15" spun into a bad thing.

    I tend to agree that they want to go defense, but I hope in their ardor they don't take a defender for the sake of going defense and get a patently inferior player.

    :laugh2: I didn't man it that way. But when we think of lumping DC with Luck et all, then you would say top 5 or 10....not top 15. I think that just reflects the Guard position.
    I'm all for grabbing Decastro, but I just think it would be fair value and not some sort of steal at 14.

    Only reason I disagree with Billick is I don't think Richardson's a sure thing.

    I do agree on DeCastro being as can't-miss as Luck.

    I totally agree with you. When just looking at positions I have us going defense very high. But when I throw names in there I can't overlook DeCastro at 14 because he seems to be such a sure thing. I don't think we necessarily need an O-lineman at 14, but you don't want to waste a 14 on someone who isn't a sure thing.
