i seriously doubt he he could start this year but it is possible he makes the steelers think twice about smith and starks collecting a huge deal after 08.
The kid seems like a student of the game, and he seems to have a record of overachieving and surprising people, so I would not at all be surprised if he does indeed start. But I think it's all contingent upon his health. He's a classic high risk/high reward draft pick.
