Now he may very well begin on the 3rd pair...but whether due to injury, compatibility or some other reason he could certainly move up at some point during the season. In a year or two he could very well be pushing for a spot with Staal on the 1st pairing.
Man, imagine if a couple of years from now we're looking at something like:

Staal - Erixon
McDonagh - Girardi
