Draft Reaction: Pittsburgh selects G David DeCastro
The Steelers didn’t have to do anything to land the best offensive guard in the class. In fact, with the way the entire draft process has been streamlined, they had to wait just a fraction over four hours to grab him.
Rumored to have been targeting Kevin Zeitler from Wisconsin, the Steelers quickly and seamlessly flipped gears (as they have become known for) when DeCastro fell, and by letting the board come to them, they landed the final offensive player from the top ten on my big board.
The Steelers have more needs than they usually do this time of year, but one of them, offensive guard, is now arguably a team strength. And the Steelers, despite picking after 20 every single year, seem to have no problem doing this to the rest of the league. DeCastro will not be an impact player, but when you’re a top 8 NFL team filling needs, that’s about as impact as you are looking for.
