NFL Draft Scouting Report

Offensive Tackle

Boston College


College Position: Offensive Tackle
School: Boston College
Grade: Senior
Height: 6-7
Weight: 295
Birthdate: 08-09-1988
Draft Projection: Mid First
Overall Rank: 17
NFL Draft Position (Rank): Offensive Tackle (3)

Draft Result

Drafted in the 2011 Draft by the Indianapolis Colts in the 1st round with the #22 pick.
The Colts have needed help desperately on the front line, and Castonzo is viewed as one of the most consistent players at the tackle position in this draft. Widely viewed as a "safe selection", he could plug in at a number of spots for the Colts, but likely will line up on Peyton Mannings blind side.
