After Alabama, no team may have more players drafted in the first round this year than Stanford. After quarterback Andrew Luck, offensive tackle Jonathan Martin and guard David DeCastro are expected to be first-round picks. Tight end Coby Fleener may also flirt with the latter part of round one.
In total, the Cardinal will send six players to the NFL Scouting Combine next week. With that in mind, Ted Miller of ESPN.com got some thoughts on the Stanford players from an NFL scout. Here's his analysis of DeCastro:
"Good kid. Should be a good pro. I see the potential. How can I put this, he's supposed to be [one of the best interior linemen]. But it's all in the eye of the beholder. Everyone has their own opinion. I think the kid will be OK. But will he be an All-Pro? I don't know. He should be, if he works hard enough. He has to get his technique down. He just needs to stay on his feet a little more when he pulls. That's about it."
