Steelers ‘Steal’ David DeCastro with First Pick
- Updated: April 27, 2012
Steelers Draft Offensive Guard David DeCastro In First Round
The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Stanford offensive guard David DeCastro with the No. 24 selection in the 2012 NFL Draft.
DeCastro was projected as high at the No. 11 pick in various CBSSports.com mock drafts, and projected as the top offensive guard in the draft. He stands 6-foot-5, 316 pounds.
DeCastro is the third straight early-round selection for the Steelers along the offensive line. Two years ago they drafted center Maurkice Pouncey and selected tackle Marcus Gilbert with their second-round pick last year.
Operating in a pro-style offense at Stanford, some draft experts think DeCastro can step in and start in the NFL this coming season.
