OG David DeCastro

This one may be a bit of a stretch (especially considering how Alan Faneca has been snubbed from the Hall of Fame thus far. However, David DeCastro is putting together a terrific body of work.

Though he didn’t make a Pro Bowl in his first three NFL seasons, DeCastro has since earned five straight Pro Bowl appearances in addition to his two first-team All-Pro selections. On the downside, Faneca had an even more impressive resume with 9 Pro Bowls and 6 first-team All-Pro selections.

DeCastro turned 30 years old this offseason, but great offensive guards can play for a long time in the NFL. The NFL doesn’t love to put interior offensive linemen into the Hall of Fame often. If he can land a few more first-team All-Pro honors, there is an outside chance he could hear his name called to Canton.

Next. 3 players the Steelers can trade for before the 2020-2021 season. dark

Though most of these players are on pace to make a case for the Hall of Fame one day, there’s no guarantee they will be able to continue playing at such a high level. If they do, however, this group of Steelers teammates could receive the NFL’s highest honor somewhere down the line.
