    Cool
    While it's a bit premature to call them among the best in the league, I think that the addition of a road grader like DeCastro is going to vastly improve a running game that's going to otherwise come out limping (literally with Rashard Mendenhall's injury) and from what I saw from him in pass protection Ben Roethlisberger may be able to breathe a bit easier (albeit probably because all the shots on his ribs will go down) and he and Pouncey could be a dangerous duo.

    They improved a ton last season I thought between all the injuries and all the moves. Hopefully DeCastro will put them over the top. Not too sure about best in the league yet, we'll have to see how everything pans out. But for the first time in a while we should have a pretty decent offensive line if all goes to plan.

    I still think he could ultimately be the starter at LG and just let Foster start at RG, unless they go with another player on this draft that could step in on the other side of Pouncey.

    Potentially they could be something special, but I'm holding off on talking them up too much until we see if they can at least stay healthy.

    The Steelers are thin at guard. Doug Legursky and Ramon Foster ended the season as their two starters and Trai Essex was re-signed as their lone veteran backup. While DeCastro played exclusively on the right at Stanford, Tomlin said it wouldn't limit him with the Steelers.
