Now will be very surprised if David DeCastro doesn't start opener. He's picking up offense quickly, seems to rarely miss an assignment.

As we have all stated: drills... meh.  

Blocking assignments on actual plays... DD is looking good.

We will really start to see what this guy is made of in the pre-season games. Until then, it's all subjective reporting of DRILLS.

Sorry to continue the derailing here, but I think both Hood and Heyward were extremely solid selections. I just don't understand the logic of drafting both of them. Maybe Keisel gets hurt this year and it all makes sense, but I'm pretty sure we could have addressed the O-line before this year, with one or the other of those picks.

keisel is in his 10th year as a pro, it wouldn't be unreasonable to say he may need to be replaced soon. while he has been putting together some great seasons, he's not getting any younger. might as well groom his replacement to be ready as soon as he's out rather than have a weakness once he can't go anymore

No offense, lol

But it is interesting how the entire thread is based on one sentence.

"I've read and heard" that DD isnt doing well. LOL

Well Thursday night you will get a shot to see what everyone has heard and or read. lol

Now on another note if Fing Colon canstop stepping on Bens ankles, maybe Ben can get out of training camp in only 3 pieces.

its not quite that easy to laugh off the thread when it was started amidst legitimate camp reports that decastro got pushed several times and was behind the learning curve (which is all true and probably why the OP asked for a camp update). forgive those who continue to give updates of his progress in this thread.

no offense, but in the meantime theres plenty of bens injury threads for you to post in.

I gotta confess, I worry a little bit about Decastro. My hopes are high, but I've never seen him play, and all I know is what I've read - draft hype, etc. It all sounds too good to be true, so a little bit of me worries every time I see a negative tidbit.

I'll feel a lot better once I see him steamrolling a few defenders!
