OG David DeCastro Scouting Report

OG David DeCastro-Stanford

Height: 6’5

Weight: 312 lbs.

Projection: Top 10

Grade:  8.0 (Grading Scale)


One of the most dominant OG prospect we’ve ever had the pleasure of scouting…plays with that nasty mentality that you just have to love in an offensive line prospect…looks to finish his blocks on every play…very athletic and is the lead blocker on almost every outside run or screen pass Stanford ran this year…locates well on the move and looks to just destroy his target once he locates them…very strong at the point of attack…anchors well and does not give up any ground…stays balanced with good footwork and does not give over extended…does a good job passing off rushers to his OC and OT…head on a constant swivel when blocking in space always looking for next player to hit…unreal awareness for sensing the delay blitz and picking it up.


At times he’s too aggressive…we’ve seen him initiate contact on pass pro like it’s a running play and at times he can get him off balance and beat by a DT with quick moves…would like to see him become more technical with his hand placement, right now his strength does a good job to mask that but at times his hands are too high…not a good cut blocker in the open field…in the Fiesta Bowl he actually out ran a screen pass and got too far out in front allowing defenders to easily slip in behind him.
