First-round pick David DeCastro will be almost as tough to replace on Stanford's offensive line as Andrew Luck will be at quarterback.
Training Camp Outlook: Going into the 2012 season, Danser is once again battling for a vacant guard position. This time, he and the Cardinal face the difficult task of trying to replace David DeCastro, the first-round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers and one of the greatest linemen in the history of the program. Danser is seen by many as a front-runner for the starting spot, but he's battling against converted center Khalil Wilkes among others, and the decision is still up in the air. "I don't think anyone is penciled in to be a leader or a favorite," Danser said of the positional competition. "There are a lot of guys that want that spot. And you're filling in for someone great. It's not like a David DeCastro comes around every year. It's going to be tough, but we're all looking forward to competing." With Jonathan Martin's vacated left tackle spot up for grabs as well, there is a possibility that Yankey could move over to tackle, leaving both Danser and Wilkes with the starting guard spots.
Danser on Twitter: Unfortunately, it appears Kevin Danser does not have a Twitter account at this time.
Alphabetically Speaking: On the list of Stanford's all-time letterwinners, Danser falls between David Daniels (1988) and Samuel M. "Duker" Dapper (1978, 1979, 1980).
Numerically Speaking: Guard Paul Weinacht, Jr. wore No. 76 from 2000-2002 and started 16 games for the Cardinal.
