There are a lot of people around here who think that the Titans should draft David DeCastro, OG, Stanford with the 20th pick in the draft. There are even a few people who think the Titans should trade up to get him if that is what it takes. Those people talk about how good DeCastro is going to be in the NFL.
Well Ted Miller of the ESPN Pac-12 blog talked to a friend of his who is an NFL scout about Mr. DeCastro. The review was no so stellar:
"Good kid. Should be a good pro. I see the potential. How can I put this, he's supposed to be [one of the best interior linemen]. But it's all in the eye of the beholder. Everyone has their own opinion. I think the kid will be OK. But will he be an All-Pro? I don't know. He should be, if he works hard enough. He has to get his technique down. He just needs to stay on his feet a little more when he pulls. That's about it."
That does not exactly sound like a guy that they should give up future picks to get, or even a guy they should spend the 20th pick on. I am still of the belief that there will be a guard in the 3rd-5th round that can end up being just as good as DeCastro. The Titans just have to find him.
