NFL Mocks: Chargers Select OL David DeCastro w/ 15th Pick

By Ernie Padaon

Last week, NFL Mocks had us selecting WR Alshon Jeffery with the 13th pick in the draft. It was a good pick for the Bolts, but we have much bigger needs on the front line and on defense and we shouldn’t use our first pick on a wide receiver.

This week, NFL Mocks selected David DeCastro out of Stanford with the 15th pick in the draft:

15. San Diego Chargers (5-7): David DeCastro, OL, StanfordThe Chargers need to make sure Philip Rivers doesn’t have to play injured. David DeCastro can really upgrade the interior of their offensive line. – NFL Mocks

We need to protect Philip Rivers and our whole left side of the line is sitting on the injured reserve list with their careers in question. Kris Dielman is contemplating retirement and Marcus McNeill’s health is in question also. We need to build up the offensive front again and a selection of David DeCastro is a good start.

DeCastro has to protect Heisman candidate QB Andrew Luck in Stanford and is a monster on the o-line. If we drafted him, he would be able to work in at guard if Kris Dielman decided to hang up his pads.
