NFL Draft 2012: Charlie Casserly Has Dallas Cowboys Selecting Stanford OG David DeCastro

The Dallas Cowboys finished their 2011 campaign with a disappointing 8-8 record amidst high expectations. Part of the reason the Cowboys struggled was due to the injuries suffered by quarterback Tony Romo. Romo played through a punctured lung injury along with cracked ribs after getting repeatedly hit in a game versus the San Francisco 49ers. The Cowboys struggled to keep Romo upright all season as their quarterback was sacked 36 times last season, ranking 6th among all quarterbacks.

NFL.com's Charlie Casserly foresees the Dallas Cowboys selecting Stanford offensive guard David DeCastro with the No. 14 pick in the draft. Casserly believes that "Dallas must continue to rebuild its offensive line," as Demarco Murray and Felix Jones both ran well when the offensive line was healthy.


DeCastro would definitely help with plowing holes in the run game along with chipping down on rushing defensive tackles to prevent the pocket from collapsing for Romo. The Cowboys have also been targeted to look at defensive backs in this draft as well.
