Seattle Native David DeCastro Signs Rookie Deal With Pittsburgh Steelers

Seattle native and now former Stanford offensive guard David DeCastro signed his rookie deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers, agreeing to terms on a four-year contract with a fifth-year option with the club.

DeCastro, the 24th pick in this year's draft, is joining the perfect team for him. The same guy who was known to avoid celebrating during games as a means of keeping his concentration is officially a part of an organization known for its grit, professionalism and intensity.

DeCastro should feel at home.

Considered to be the top interior offensive lineman in the draft and the best one to come along in years, DeCastro should start from Day One at left guard and will help protect quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Andrew Luck can give Roethlisberger a little insight into what kind of offensive lineman he's about to have in front of him for the next few years. DeCastro gave up only one sack during his entire collegiate career at Stanford.
