Jason Worilds, DE, Virginia Tech

Jason Worilds opted to leave Virginia Tech a year early, so far that seems to have been a good decision. Worilds is a great athlete who is quicker than most defensive ends. However, he lacks the size to play on the end at the next level in most schemes. That means he will likely have to move to linebacker. But with the Hokies, Worilds was a dominating defensive end. After missing all but two games as a true freshman in 2006 due to a shoulder injury, Worilds started to make an impact in 2007. By the 2008 campaign Worilds was a big time contributor and tallied 62 tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss and 8.0 sacks. As a junior in 2009, the 6-1, 254 pound Carteret, New Jersey native was often double teamed. Yet, he still managed to total 49 tackles, 11.0 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. Worilds is still a project and it remains to be seen if he should play as an end in a 4-3 defense or a linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. The other issue with Worilds is his nagging shoulder injury. He has a ton of talent and athleticism, but some teams may shy away from him because of the injury concerns. Either way Worilds' athleticism will get him drafted in the first two or three rounds and he seems to keep moving up draft boards.
