The Terrible Podcast – Talking David DeCastro & 2012 NFL Draft Round One Recap Episode

Steelers PodcastSeason 2, Episode 101 of The Terrible Podcast is up and David Todd and start celebrating the selection of Stanford guard David DeCastro as the 24th pick in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. We start breaking down the picks and trades that happened along the way that set up the gift from heaven to the Steelers and make sure to spank and thank the Cleveland Browns for playing a big role in it all.

After a further recap of round one we talk specifically about DeCastro and what he brings to the table. What side will he ultimately play and does that even matter right now? We discuss, but both agree that he is a plug and play guard for sure. DUH! We move on to talk about where the Steelers go from here in rounds two and three as far as potential targets and talk about a few positions and players that might become value.

David and I will be back at you again on Saturday with a recap of the Steelers day two picks and will look ahead to day three then.

    Great podcast as always guys, and this Steeler fan at least is walking around smiling like he’s on something I would be suspended 4 games for, lol. Would Love to see Massie in Rd 2, Mike Martin maybe Rd 3 James-Michael Johnson RD 4 , again these guys are grinders, not the flash/splash draft talent, but solid picks. Perhaps we Steeler fans will have “an ugly” draft as far as glamour type picks, but we will have potentially one that will keep the team competitive for quite a while. Not sure ILB is a need/want pick as much as was once thought, was looking at the measurable’s for those ILB’s left on the board and most are very close to Morty Ivy’s who is already under contract, also with an upgraded O-line, if that allows for even 4 more minutes of ball possession a game that equates to the “D” playing essentially one whole less game this upcoming season or at least being rested that whole bunch more. Gives those “older and slower” guys a chance to breathe and keeps gas in their tanks, also it exposes the younger less experienced guys at corner, nickle and dime, that much less. Just food for thought and discussion.

    Great Podcast Guys as always. What do you think about grabbing another Guard in this second round. I would love it. Makes your interior O-line very good if you can grab Brooks or the Guard form Midwestern State.

    As hard as it is to see the Steelers lose in the playoffs, if they aren’t going to win the Super Bowl, going out in the first round isn’t such a bad thing – we get a shot at better draft choices like this stud from Stanford.

    Would love to see the Steelers take a chance on NT Miles Wade from Portland State. Could be a great value in round 6 or 7.

  • Intropy

    Add Reiff to the list of values staring the Steelers in the face that made a trade up unnecessary.

  • Intropy

    I started wondering about trading up at about 18. And remember that just because the Steelers didn’t trade up doesn’t mean they didn’t try to. It takes two to make that deal. As it turns out not trading up worked out about as well as it possibly could have (the only other player with any chance at all that I liked more than DeCastro was Kuechly).
