    We all tend to project our hopes on the #1 picks far too early ...

    My hunch is that DeCastro will ultimately be a reserve early on and find his way into the game-day lineup through the alternative course of action ... nicks, dings and injuries above him on the depth charts ...
    DeCastro will seize the starting job by the start of the regular season and he will never look back. Take that to the bank. The starting job wasn't given to Pouncey until the 3rd preseason game. I see a similar path for DeCastro.

    If last night was any indication of the future of DeCastro then I'm pretty content so far. He's struggling physically yeah, but watching him last night in his first action he had some good moments too.


    I think we'll see him start to really take control at training camp now that he's gotten a taste of game situations at the pro level.

    I agree that's a EXCELLENT break down of Decastro, He has to get a lil attitude adjustment ( Mr.Personality ) as he is called by team mates...
