Starks was a big guy that played LT in front of Rex Grossman in Florida (and I think Danny Weurffel) that was a good pass protector, but the question on him was if he would be a good run blocker. He showed some aggression in the senior bowl and ended up a 3rd round pick. I still dont see him as a great run blocker though.
Chris Williams is the same IMO. A guy that is a better pass protector and athlete than Starks was , but again a questionmark as a run blocker, but showed some aggression in Mobile, Ala because the scouts were watching.
Its why I dont think Williams is a good fit for the Steelers and Cherilus at least is a mauler as a RT, that has the tools and potential to hold his own in pass protection. At the worst, he is Max Starks as a RT, but a better pure run blocker.
