    I don't know if any will start, but I could see Le'veon Bell having the best chance.

    Barring injury none start.

    You know what's even sadder?

    But there will be an injury and Thomas will start for Troy. I also think Bell starts unless Dwyer surprises folks even more than he did last year.

    Thomas may have as good a shot at contributing right away as anyone. He could be used in the nickle and dime packages. I wouldn't be surprised to see him matched up with some slot WRs and taking Gay's spot or even replacing Foote next to Timmons on 3rd downs. I think there's quite a few defensive packages where they could use him right away assuming Carnell gets him coached up.

    Jarvis Jones, after the inevitable Jason Worilds injury.

    My call is both Jones and Bell starting.

    I know DeCastro was supposed as a plug/play guy and didn't... but I really think both Jones and Bell bring that ability as well. I think Jones is better situated to start right away. The fact that they even had Jones so high on their radar, says something to me about what they think of Worilds (not much). Jones is probably already the better rusher, and will only have to prove adequate vs. the run to beat out Worilds.

    As for Bell, even though he's supposed to be a good pass-blocker and receiver, he's going to have to prove that at the pro level.
