He absolutely could, he's a beast of a human so you can only hope his game improves to match his monstrous frame, but we should wait until he shows more next year before giving him Weber comparisons.
I think you gotta see how he grows and how his game develops. I agree, him becoming Weber is a pipe dream, but then again, Shea Weber becoming Shea Weber was one too, so we can dream, right?

I do think we need to start focusing on offensive forwards, I mean our defense and grinders seem to be set for quite awhile Only exception I'd make is if there's a huge difference between the BAF and BAD, in which case I guess you gotta take the Dman.
