Strengths

Decastro is a technician on the field and is beautiful to watch for those who respect offensive line play. He is very quick off the ball to get into his block. Decastro is able to shuffle nicely to avoid trash when pulling or down blocking and, once engaged, is very strong to his ground. He demonstrates a good snap upon contact with defenders and is usually the one providing the drive-back pressure on his man. Once locked on his man, he can drive and maneuver them at will using his very strong upper body. Decastro is extremely controlled in his movements, and he has body control and overall balance that is rare for a man his size. Decastro is very athletic on the move and can key in and adjust on his moving target well. It's nearly impossible to find many weak points in Decastro's play throughout college, and he could easily be the best lineman on his team as a rookie.

Weaknesses

Decastro is inconsistent when finishing run blocks downfield in terms of keeping his hands engaged on his man. There were times in 2011 when he would fall off his blocks at times -- although never an effort issue, there are some slight hitches in his bending and footwork as he is engaged in contact and moving downfield that cause him to fall off slightly. He is not a very violent puncher with his hands but doesn't necessarily need to be being the technician that he is.
