Good news Bengals fans, at least this writer thinks it is good news. During Stanford guard David DeCastro's Pro Day today, Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander spent time with DeCastro. The likely first round pick did not participate in the forty yard dash, but spent time with Alexander while his teammates ran, according to CBSSPORTS.COM''s Rob Rang.
DeCastro may not be available with the 17th pick in the draft, but if available, he would fit right in. The Bengals have an open spot at right guard, and he would seemingly be a great fit there, replacing free agent veteran Bobbie Williams. Pairing DeCastro with newly acquired ,and likely starting left guard Travelle Wharton, would likely help the running game immensely. If the Bengals are not able to draft DeCastro, there are other potential options. Georgia's Cordy Glenn, Iowa State's Kelechi Osemele, Midwestern State's Amini Silatolu, Miami Ohio's Brandon Brooks,and Wisconsin's Kevin Zeilter are all likely day one or two picks.
David DeCastro didn't run 40 as he did it at the Combine; while teammates ran it he spent entire time with Bengals OL coach Paul Alexander.
