You sound awfully self-assured, considering he has yet to play a single down of football in the NFL.

So pulling is all that is expected out of a guard in the NFL? How is he expected to do in pass protection? Will he cause any neutral zone infractions being completely new? Will he have some trouble picking up the playbook he has not participated in all season?

Yeah and Tim Tebow was supposed to carry his Heisman-worthy play into the NFL, not complete 43% of his passes. We can only predict so much from college performances.

Not saying Decastro will suck (I hope not), but I don't see where you have anything convincing here.

But no, don't let facts get in the way of doomsday predictions.
You have no facts that pertain to Decastro in the NFL. Denis Dixon was awesome in college, but was an interception waiting to happen in the NFL. Tim Tebow was supposed to be the next best thing to happen to teh QB position snce gloves and he stinks.

We can only draw so many conclusions from college ball performances. Some of that just does not translate into the NFL.
