Don't be surprised when Carolina goes Offensive Line in the first..

Rieff seems like an okay LT, nothing really dominant about his game. So if we go o-line, I hope we get DeCastro.

No way that I would take DeCastro at 8/9....not for a Guard.

wont be surprised

when you get a superstar QB the top seven thousand priorities of the entire franchise should involve PROTECTING YOUR fuging SUPERSTAR QB

even a franchise as previously devoid of superstar QBs as carolina should realize this

cam is a once in a lifetime opportunity and you would have to be have downs syndrome to squander it by getting him injured due to starting UDFAs on the line

David Decastro is far and away the best OL prospect at the combine, he was fluid, kept his back straight had perfect feet on every drill... The only reason hes not top 5 is because he is an interior lineman, should be a SOLID choice at #9. He will be BPA.

So, for me, that looks like this...

Brockers/Coples/Upshaw/Ingram, and then Leonard Johnson, Chase Minnfield, Stephon Gilmore... at #9 and #40 respectively... in no particular order..

or...

David Decastro... and guys like... Brandon Thompson Fletcher Cox, Jerrel Worthy, or, the corners listed above...

After this option 1 does look better if I really want to address DT, but at the same time is the RISK worth the REWARD? I dont see it.

This combine is making me less and less sour on the idea of taking DeCastro at #9.

NFL.com has him as a potential top-10 despite being a guard.

It'd be nice to plug up RG... and I believe that I read somewhere that Schwarz's hip problem might be pretty bad.

Then again, I'm in the camp that TD can come back so what do I know >.>

Schwartz said he's fine, just getting strength back... and I think TD can also come back. The reason I like Decastro at #9 is because I think hes a sure fire 10 year starter, and a cant miss guy... at #9, thats what I want.. nobody else at #9 fits that bill, its should, could, maybe.

Welcome aboard the Decastro train. Right now I think its just a couple of us on here. Thats my logic as well. If its all-pro G over raw DT with potential thats a no brainier to me.

I would only take Castro if i was pretty sure he was gonna be the next Carl Nicks.

Nicks is the best g in football. I think DeCastro is a different kind--he is more cerebral. He takes PERFECT angles--can block anyone on the field,

If we cut Wharton before March 13, I think, then that should tell you that we have decided on Castro. If we do not, then that means nothing.

Thats what im saying, you take a guard in the top ten u gotta have some idea he might be the best in the game one day, especially if you got greater needs elsewhere. I like him tho and i wouldnt be to mad about the pick.

Carl nicks wasn't even drafted until the 5th round.

Logan Makins was 32 picked

Jahri Evans was a 4th round pick

Josh Sitton was a 4th round pick

Chris Snee was a 2nd round pick

Kris Dielman wasn't drafted

Eric Steinbach was a 2nd round pick

Chris Kemoeatu was a 6th round pick

Brian Waters wasn't drafted

Brandon Moore wasn't drafted

These were the best guards in Football do you notice a pattern?

Only 1 was a 1st round pick. Their are more undrafted then 2nd round picks.

Why waste a pick on a guard when you have 4-5 player on the roster at that position.
