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.
Dozens of football hopefuls between the ages of eight and 17 took part in the event with the second-year NFL running back. McCluster, 23, earned a letter in basketball, track and field and football during his prep career at Largo High School.
“I love to give back to the community any chance I get,” McCluster said Saturday between drills with the youngsters. “I was born and raised here so I want to be a positive role model for anyone here who might need it.”
In celebration of the club’s 50 years in Kansas City, Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt informed fans on Saturday that all season ticket account holders – both existing and new accounts – will be given one personalized Chiefs Nike jersey per account to honor them for their support and enthusiasm over the years.
“We are very excited to be celebrating 50 years in Kansas City,” Hunt said. “My family and I are extremely grateful to be a part of this great city and we have built so many fond memories here through the years. When my dad brought this team to Kansas City, he knew there was something special about this place. For 50 years, the Kansas City community has rallied around the Chiefs, and for that, we want to say thank you for being the best fans in the NFL.”
