When these guys jump from college to pros, they are dealing with a whole different level of opposition, especially strength.
Going back in time, even Alan Faneca wasn't instant good. any rookie OL will have ups and downs. Decastro will probably be great in year 3 or 4.
He very well could be, but you never want the rest of the league and public to know you have actually said it's physically difficult. Normally you hear guys say mentally it's tough. Just as an NFL player you don't want people to know you're having a tough time physically ... especially linemen. Don't care if you are a rookie or not
