Hub was so adamant about Decastro was the right pick last year instead of McClellin that he just doesn't give it up. He even brings up the point about how Long was not needed and a reach this year, because Decastro should have been picked last year. Hub continued with the pick this year should have been Sharrif Floyd. Well we all can see how Long is as a player, tough, smart, feisty, etc and I did not hear nor see Floyd this past Sunday.
Now, I don't agree with the McClellin pick, I watched Decastro last Sunday night on almost every play...What I saw was a guy who got pushed off the ball on a number of plays (esp the 1st Q, Long from what I have seen has not been yet). Decastro's form is good and balanced, good run blocker but seems over-matched on pass blocking on more plays than not. Not to mention the false start late in the 4th that the ref's got wrong and called a neutral zone infraction on the def player.
So, Hub give it a rest. Decastro does not appear yet to be the player that you hyped up, thankfully he was not picked because we might not have landed Long.
