NFL Draft 2012: Pittsburgh Steelers Reportedly Taking David DeCastro

So much for any possibility of the Kansas City Chiefs moving up to take David DeCastro in the 2012 NFL Draft. After many people thought the Chiefs might take him at No. 11 to bolster the offensive line, DeCastro has dropped much farther down draft boards than any analyst predicted. However, the Pittsburgh Steelers are reportedly set to take him at No. 24 according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

DeCastro is a Stanford product regarded as potentially the best interior offensive lineman to come out to the pro level since Steve Hutchinson. That’s high praise for DeCastro, but he’s impressed anyone who’s watched his game tape and the Steelers could have themselves a Pro Bowl caliber player for the next decade.

The Chiefs can still address the guard position in the draft since it is one of the deepest positions in the draft class. Kevin Zeitler is still on the board, as is Cordy Glenn. Multiple others would make fine additions as well by the time the Chiefs select in the second round.
