Perhaps the biggest disappointment of Steelers training camp has been the struggles of first-round pick David DeCastro.

I didnt specify if it was regular season or pre or post injury...i just had read (which i posted above) that decastro was struggling with the physical nature of the NFL....
Now in no way do i think he cant overcome it, or be a good player, i just want people to temper their expectations about "cant miss" guys
