NFL Draft Results 2012: Pittsburgh Steelers Select OG David DeCastro With No. 24 Pick

With the No. 24 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers have selected David DeCastro, the imposing offensive guard from the Stanford Cardinal.

DeCastro is considered one of the top offensive line talents and most definitely the best interior lineman out there. DeCastro was named a unanimous All-American in 2011, and anchored an offensive line in the middle that gave up only 24 sacks the past three seasons and powered some of the best college rushing attacks in Stanford football history. DeCastro should be able to utilize those skills to become an excellent run blocker at the next level, particularly as a pulling guard on power run plays to help open up the interior.
