Draft status: DeCastro plays with great competitiveness on every snap. His determination, combined with his top-level athleticism, makes him a rare prospect. Despite his average playing strength, his usually solid technique enables him to produce at a high level.
We believe both the Kansas City Chiefs (who draft 11th overall) and Arizona Cardinals (13th) will strongly consider picking him in the first half of the first round.
The Chiefs have had issues with their interior offensive line in recent seasons. Veteran center Casey Wiegmann, 38, is a free agent. His backup, Rodney Hudson, is an unproven player entering his second year. As a rookie, DeCastro could start at guard or center for the Chiefs and provide a nice upgrade.
