Steelers 2012 1st Round Draft Pick David DeCastro Introductory Press Conference Audio

The Pittsburgh Steelers introduced their 2012 first round draft pick, Stanford guard David DeCastro, to the media today so he could hold his introductory press conference. Team President Art Rooney II introduced DeCastro after the ceremonial presentation of the No. 1 Steelers jersey.

Right Or Left For David DeCastro & Does It Really Matter?

Now that the shock of David DeCastro being selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers has worn off, the question I see most asked is if the Stanford product can play left guard. Of course Mike Tomlin was asked that very question during the press conference following the pick and said, "He is a right guard. That’s what he has played at Stanford. We are going to work to put our best people...

How The Hell Did That Happen & Who Should The Steelers Thank For The Gift Of DeCastro?

DeCastro is elite among interior linemen

From the fans' perspective, there is nothing less sexy than to take a guard or center in the draft. Yet when you get value at that position, you can anchor your offense in a way that is seldom recognized. A good interior line can cover average tackles on the edge and provide diversity and power to your offense. Teams typically carry only three interior linemen on game day, so versatility...

NFL Draft Prospect: OG David DeCastro, Stanford

David DeCastro is a real OG, at least in the sense that he plays offensive guard. While Andrew Luck has been getting all of the accolades for the Cardinals, and even offensive tackle Jonathan Martin getting some love, DeCastro has been often overlooked. But those in the know have been saying all year that he may have been just as valuable to Stanford's success as Mr. Luck himself...
