Despite all the hype on this board about him, I wasn't sold on DeCastro after his performance at the combine. RG is not a "skill" position, but more of one that requires certain minimums of physical strength and speed to go with the techniques. He was ok, but didn't impress with his showing at the combine.
It will be interesting to see how DeCastro and Fleener do in the future. I still believe that Fleener might have been a great pick at #30. He's got size and great speed, and could even play some WR. Him and VD and Walker could have posed some real headaches for opposing defenses. IMHO.
PS: At least I was right about the team adding playmakers.
All of this.. word for word.. goes for me too.
