NFL Mock Draft 2012: Arizona Cardinals Take David DeCastro

The Arizona Cardinals really need to get that offensive line in shape. They have made some acquisitions in free agency, but it might not be enough to totally protect their quarterbacks.

Ryan Van Bibber of SB Nation releases his latest mock draft, and the Cardinals pick up a Cardinal, one David DeCastro, offensive guard from Stanford. Van Bibber explains that just in terms of offensive line talent, DeCastro might be the best available player for the Cardinals to take.

Many put an offensive tackle here, but DeCastro is easily the second-best lineman in the draft, behind only Matt Kalil. Arizona could sure use him. The Stanford product will make life easier for an offense that struggled behind a weak line last year.
