    Decastro worries me a little at 14. He's got great feet and hands and he's an excellent pulling guard and pass protector. I just don't know that he's got the power to be a road grader in the running game, especially in short yardage.

    If I were to pick a guard that high, he'd better be the second coming of John Hannah.

    I agree, his weakness seems to be the same as the 'Boys interior lineman had last year. Collapsing right into Romo's lap.

    The more I think about it and the closer the draft comes, the more I want defense. I hope that is the way they go (with at least their #1 pick).

    Ross Tucker says otherwise and since he actually played in the NFL at that position I say anyone claiming such is FOS.

    Wrong, not even close. Decastro is a great run blocker. Great power blocker and zone blocker plus he's the best pulling/ trap guard in the country.

    Yes, DeCastro is worth the pick. Question is where is he at on Dallas's board and who do they have in front of him?

    Yes. Well worth the pick at that position. Just pencil him in, barring injury, for the start of the year and the next 10.

    yes, but let's be realistic. some criticize his ability to run block. in open space they say he looks lost. he's still a hell of an OL though and worth the 14 IF we can't get mark barron :D

    DeCastro is a freaking stud, most scouting services have him graded as "elite" so I dont know where the idea that he is weak in the run game came from.

    DeCastro could literally start for almost every team in the league on day 1, that is how freaking good he is.

    I loved what Glazer was saying about him and what other GMs told him. "He is nasty. He is the one guy no one wants to fight."

    Reminds me a bit of Erik Williams attitude.

    I want him more than I did before and I really wanted him.
