2012 NFL Second Round Draft Open Thread, Part II: Rolling Through The 'Reach' Round

It's official. David DeCastro has officially become a tag in BTSC's blogerator. That's the thing we use to write posts like this. It's filled with all kinds of stuff to make our lovely writing more search friendly. Tags are a big part of it, and it's something special when you see "David DeCastro - (G - PIT)" appear magically, as if it's the final bow on top of a present that's going to give so much.

Sorry...anyway.

A team can't really reach for a player in the second round, in the traditional sense. Sure, players get taken perhaps higher than they should in the second round, but the 'reach' part is usually reserved for the first round guys teams had to jump up and take.

The second round is more of the destination of the non-reached guys. That's today. That's what starts in just a few minutes.

Maybe you're a guy who came home to find an empty house, a fridge full of beer, a pacified dog and a coupon for takeout. You can only wish to be so lucky. You can only wish to be me tonight.

My team has David DeCastro. Does yours? (Yell it with me, YES!) Who else will Pittsburgh add to what's already become one of the better drafts in years? I'm cruising on Draft Auto Pilot now, and will just be trying to keep you informed of which beer I'm on, make fun of the guy Seattle drafted (instead of DeCastro) and enjoy the unpredictability that comes with the NFL Draft.

Let's get it!
