A source tells Rob Rang of CBS Sports/NFL Draft Scout that Stanford junior guard David DeCastro will enter the 2012 NFL Draft.

The source told Rang that DeCastro is "definitely coming out. It isn't a matter of if, but when." The report hasn't been confirmed or denied by Stanford, DeCastro or any other media outlet.

If it's true, you have to wonder how highly DeCastro will get drafted. In the past two seasons, we've seen two college guards — Mike Pouncey this year and Mike Iupati in 2010 — get drafted in the first 20 picks. Of course, it should be noted that Pouncey played center his last season of college and starts there for the Miami Dolphins.

DeCastro will likely be placed higher on NFL team's draft boards, so a similar or higher spot could be in his future. DeCastro is a pro-ready blocker who plays with great toughness and rarely gets beat in the run game.
