Default Is anyone unhappy with the David DeCastro selection?

post here and explain why.

(if youre happy with the selection, continue posting in the david decastro thread where everybody is happy with the selection).

my initial hunch is this could be the happiest steelernation as a majority has been with a first round selection in quite a while. it seems nobody at all is upset or disappointed.

Bruce Arians is disappointed. He wanted another tall WR.

This is a late first round robbery in the mold of Miller and comparable to Pouncy in value. It's absolutely goldiculous.

People could have been upset if we had to choose between Glenn and Hightower and went Glenn, but when the top guard prospect, who could have gone top ten and is being touted as the best guard in years, falls into your lap, and guard is your weakest position, you really can't complain.

If we got Hightower instead, I wouldn't be as excited as I am now. No complaints here. DeCastro owns.

Our front office is the best in the league. So awesome we have Kevin Colbert.

In the midst of Kevin Colbert's teams and first rounds ultimately being All-Pro's & putting together Super Bowl caliber teams, this may be his best 1st rounder YET. Ecstatic to land DeCastro. This dude is a KILLER.

I'm ecstatic with the DeCastro selection, without a doubt the best value pick of Round 1.

**** no! I'm totally stoked, who would have thought he dropped that far? I never even thought Glenn would have dropped tbh. We filled our biggest need, couldn't have been a better first round for us. He will be an immediate starter this year, the only question is left or right lol

Colbert and Tomlin said that DeCastro will start off on the right where he played at Stanford.

i've been wanting a guard in the 1st since the year we knew faneca was leaving but to get one that graded as high as decastro is just unbelievable.
