There is little doubt that David DeCastro and Jonathan Martin will be selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. There is always a chance one of these talented offensive linemen somehow slip into the second day, but plenty of teams have shown interest in recent weeks and both improved their stock at the Stanford Pro Day.
According to this latest survey of mock drafts from USA Today, many experts are projecting DeCastro and Martin for the middle of round one.
Staff writer Jarrett Bell of USA Today has DeCastro going to the Chargers with the 18th pick and Martin going to the Giants with the final pick of the first round. Jim Corbett of USA Today has DeCastro going 11th to the Chiefs and Martin at No. 23 to the Lions. Nate Davis has DeCastro heading to the Cardinals in the first round, with Martin going to the Lions as well.
Rob Rang of NFLDraftScout.com has DeCastro at 17 to the Bengals and Martin heading to the Lions. Wes Bunting of National Football Post has DeCastro 20th to the Titans. He projects Martin to the Steelers at No. 24.
