According to Pro Football Focus, Pittsburgh Steelers second-year guard David DeCastro graded out as the best offensive lineman in the preseason loss Monday night to the Washington Redskins.
DeCastro, who missed nearly all of his rookie season with a knee injury suffered during the preseason, was flagged once for holding and allowed one hurry in the 39 snaps that he played in the game.
As bad as the Steelers offensive line looked Monday night, at least DeCastro is not only fully healthy now, but living up to his first-round selection as well.
As far as the grades for the rest of the Steelers starting offensive linemen, you don\’t need confirmation from PFF to know that Maurkice Pouncey, Mike Adams and Marcus Gilbert all had bad games.
Of the backups, center John Malecki graded out the best with Guy Whimper grading out as the worst.
