    Yes, the happiest I have been at #1 since Ben. A HUGE need filled with the best player possible at that position. Just solidifed the Oline for the next 10 years or so. DeCastro will be the anchor, will also free up Pouncey as well. Could be our best guard since Moon Mullins. Not with the addition of Adams O-Line looks great.

    DeCastro started off what has been an outstanding draft so far. I know he hasn't proved himself yet but I'm a believer that he's going to be the starter in week 1, he's just too good not to be.

    Do you see him at LG or RG? I thought he would be a great trapping LG.

    He can do both probably, but he played RG most of his career and I have him as a better RG than LG. We do, however, need a LG more than RG so who knows.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Did anyone see the Coach T interview during the 7th round today on NFL network? They asked him a few questions then asked him about DeCastro. I've never seen him smile like that. He is flat out giddy about having him, and I can't imagine anything that would keep him from starting week 1 when we give Peyton his first loss as a Bronco.

    Means NADA now. That was then, this is now and beyond.
    Remember Big Ben was a HUGE Elway admirer along a Niners fan.

    I can overlook/ forgive such past flaws.

    Getting more excited about watching him every time I read something on him. His father and grandfather both played Rugby in South Africa. The Rugby mentality that he brings will endear him to all the Steeler fans.

    Just thought I'd throw this out there:
    @EdBouchette: Some people call #steelers rookie G DeCastro the next Faneca. DeCastro wearing No. 66 today at rookie camp
