Aaron Smith is quite underrated I think, one of the secret keys to the Steelers world title last season.

We saw what happened in 2007 when he went down with that torn bicep: the Jags basically ran on us at will, mostly to his side.

Yes! Last time, we had Nick Eason to step in, and that scared exactly no one, but Ziggy looks like a killer backup. I think he's going to see some meaningful snaps this season.
