2010 Draft

Steelers Select OLB Jason Worilds With The 52nd Selection In The Second Round Of 2010 NFL Draft

The Steelers selected outside linebacker Jason Worilds in the second round Of 2010 NFL Draft. Worlids is an athletic player out of Virginia Tech and was named second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference, registering 49 tackles, 11 for losses, 4 1/2 sacks, one forced fumble and 32 quarterback hurries. Worilds does not seem fit to play as a down linemen and is questionable in pass coverage. Worilds ran a 4.49 and 4.53 in the 40 and stood on his combine numbers in the vertical jump, three-cone drill and bench press. He had a 9-10 broad jump and 4.13 short shuttle. He has speed and can get push up field, but is slow off the snap and lacks good instincts and awareness. I consider him a classic tweener, rush linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. Very unpolished and could of used another year in school. With James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley at outside linebacker, the Steelers expect Worilds to help out on special teams this season while he learns their blitz-heavy 3-4 defense. The 6-foot-1, 254-pound Worilds was a defensive end at Virginia Tech mostly.
