David DeCastro, OL, Stanford -- DeCastro closely resembles Steve Hutchinson on the field with his aggressive nature and dominant strength. Scouts wonder if DeCastro can make the move from guard to right tackle in the NFL. He's listed at 6-foot-5 on the Stanford website, the perfect height for a right tackle prospect. If his Combine measurement is close to that number and DeCastro turns in a good workout, franchises around the league could place him on their draft board at the right tackle position. His draft stock would then soar.

Not promoting this for a pick. Just for your info.

Or maybe he could be a very good Guard in the NFL?

He is one of the more dominant Guards to come around in a while.

Not broke, why try and fix it?

Might want to bring him in for a look as competition for Cassell....

I don't see how him projecting as a RT increases his draft stock.

Arms seem kind of short for a T don't they?

David DeCastro was 6-4 7/8th and weighed 316. He had 32 3/4 inch arms and 10 inch hands.

Teams are more apt to draft a RT higher than they are an OG.

True, but he's already listed as a top 15 pick.

If he is being compared to Steve Hutchinson he will be a Top 15, possibly Top 10 player.

I think that arm length is devastating.

No way he goes to tackle. Absolutely no way the Chiefs pick him at 11. He may fall to the bottom of the first round now.

That's how important arm length is for offensive lineman.

Overreact much?

Rodney Hudson - 32 1/2" arms
Mike Pouncey - 32 1/4" arms

I think he was talking more in line about it being important for Tackles right?

I'd thought earlier about DeCastro as a RT but have to admit it was just wishful thinking. I'd still take him at 11, think he's going to be a good one. Side note, he played C in high school. Target the best RT prospect in the second round and use the rest of the draft for depth a S, RB, TE, etc.

Bryan Bulaga was criticized for his arm length too, he's doing fine.

Can't bring in competition higher than a 5th due to a clause in Cassel's contract.

This guy might be the next Steve Hutchison i'm sure I'll get flamed for this but I don't think i'll be pissed if we draft him.

Considering Pioli began his fraudulent GM career by sticking his father-in-law's castoff fatass guard at RT (Ikechuku Ndukwe), I'm sure he would draft DeCastro with the idea he'd be a multiple Pro Bowler at RT.

Bring it on, Fat Scott. Slit your own chubby throat.

Draft planet is a better place for lack of your presence. Go troll elsewhere.
