The bengals have taken some flak for grading Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler ahead of Stanford guard David DeCatro, who apparently was the greatest thing since sliced bread coming into this draft. The guys over at Pro Football Weekly also had Zeitler ranked ahead of DeCastro, citing that Zeitler has already shown NFL-level strength, while DeCatro has elite speed and footwork, but that won’t matter if he doesn’t have the strength to maintain his blocks at an NFL level:
We had Kevin Zeitler higher on the board than (David) DeCastro, whose best asset is his initial quickness. He’s not strong or powerful. I don’t know where all the hype came from. If you had to take him where it sounded like you needed to take him, you might be wrong, I thought.
