1.58 seconds 10 yard split on the 40 yard dash at the combine. That is one of the top 2 or 3 for pass rushers at the combine.

4.51 forty at his pro day.

This guy is far from Bruce Davis and Alonzo Jackson athletically.

yeah im starting to warm up to the worilds pick. i youtubed him and he should strength, speed, and alot of nice moves. He also takes great angles. He makes a beeline to the QB or RB which is awesome. He'll get sidestepped early on but he will adjust in a short time. And I suppose with Harrison getting up in age, Tomlin wants to start grooming the successor to the throne and perhapd Jason is a good candidate. Gibson from Ohio State????? Maybe he plans to move him to the inside. Foote has 1 or 2 yrs left and he is what he is. Farrior did not look like he should have been starting last year. We all love the guy but it remains to be seen whether he regains form this year. It could be his last and I would not be surprised if he does not start this year. Timmons and Foote should fill the inside. 5th round should be cornerback heavy for us with a RB to boot.

I wanted Gibson over Worilds. Can't complain we got both. Hope I am right when I say this. Gibson = Porter

Compare him to Sergio Kindle. Kindle had a 1.68 10 yard split and played in the pass happy Big 12. All he was asked to do was rush the passer. I like Kindle, but I think Worilds may end up being the better player.

According to alot of sites, Worild was asked to be more of a run stuffer this year. He also crushed Tennessee in the Bowl game.

I agree. The LB focus this draft makes me think the staff knows Farrior will need big-time help this season. He really struggled in coverage towards the end of the season and missed a few key tackles. Not saying he ain't a great player, just that the time comes for all of us at some point to get on with our life's work. We may see a lot of rotation at ILB during games this season.

So this article says that the two best predictors of pass rusher success are vertical jump and short shuttle.

At the combine Worilds finished tied for the top vertical for D-lineman with 38 inches and seventh in the short shuttle with a 4.29.

Gibson's vertical of 32 inches at his pro day would not have been in the top ten for d-linemen at the combine but his 4.27 short shuttle placed him 5th.

Yes, this is being overlooked by some. Farrior is basically done as a full time LB. He probably has one more year as a full time starter at best. Foote couldn't play the pass when he was here before. That means that ILB will be a need in 2011. The Steelers like to take a player one year early if possible so they can groom the player for a year.

I am really excited about a couple of the UFA. I think Dixon and Black both have a chance to stick.

I think there will be some veterans from last year's team that end up being released.

I think that having A. Smith back witll help keep our MLBs clean and you'll see Farrior play better than last year if Smith stays healthy and Hood plays better after having some experience.

Agreed. Fast LB's are also welcome on a team whose kick coverages need much improvement

I think Gibson will end up being a very good OLB. I'm not an OSU fan but living in Ohio I watched some games. He seemed to get penetration often during the games I watched. We shall see.

Steelers land All Worilds

Steelers find necessary depth at outside linebacker in the second round and hope they caught lightning from a run-and-shoot bottle in the third.

PITTSBURGH – A couple of years ago, the Steelers weren’t sure the defensive end they’d been scouting could drop into coverage. So they went to his Pro Day and that’s the day they fell in love with LaMarr Woodley.
They drafted him in the second round and he became a Pro Bowler.

The Steelers are hoping the same scenario unfolds for Jason “All” Worilds, their second-round pick.

“He probably had one of the best workouts this year of anyone we’ve seen,” said Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler.

Worilds is a 6-1, 254-pound defensive end from Virginia Tech who led the nation with 38 quarterback pressures last season and projects to outside linebacker in the Steelers’ 3-4 scheme.

The Steelers drafted Worilds in the second round and followed it up by drafting SMU slot receiver Emmanuel Sanders in the third round.

Worilds adds needed depth to a position that – fortunately for the Steelers – has been relatively unscathed by injuries the last two seasons.

“We need some depth on this football team at outside linebacker,” Butler said. “And we need better special teams than we had last year, and we think this guy can help us in that area quickly.”

Worilds, coming from Virginia Tech, already has the Special Teams Gene. It’s coached into the players’ DNA there. But it's as a pass-rusher that Worilds’ future lies with the Steelers.

A two-time first-team all-state player out of Carteret, New Jersey, Worilds had 15.5 sacks, 75 pressures, 34.5 tackles for loss and caused five fumbles in 41 career college games.

His best season was his redshirt sophomore season in 2008 when he had eight sacks. That total dipped to 4.5 last season, and Butler explained that Worilds “got a lot of attention from different offenses he played against. A lot of people doubled him.”

Worilds’ best game may have been his last. He repeatedly pressured Tennessee quarterback Jonathan Crompton and Worilds’ sack/forced fumble sealed a 37-14 Tech win in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

Tech’s left defensive end was also a big reason Tennessee running back Montario Hardesty gained only 39 yards on 18 rushes. Worilds, in fact, limited opposing runners to just 44 yards on 117 run plays in his career, according to the Tech sports information department, that claims no ballcarrier scored against Worilds during his career.

That career was shortened when Worilds opted to turn pro after his redshirt junior season. The 22-year-old showed great linebacker aptitude at the combine and followed it up with an impressive Pro Day in which the 254-pounder ran a 4.51 40.

“Speed,” Butler said of Worilds’ primary asset. “But more than anything he was fluid.”

“I want to be the best,” said Worilds. “I just want to go in there and earn those guys’ respect, try to be the best that I can be, contribute in any way, and not get in those guys’ way; just be a sponge.”

In the third round, the Steelers drafted Sanders, a 5-11, 186-pound slot receiver who caught 98 passes for 1,339 yards and 7 touchdowns at SMU under Coach June Jones, a long-time run-and-shoot devotee.

Sanders appeared to be merely a small run-and-shoot receiver at the East-West Shrine Game, where he was knocked around by king-sized free safety Kam Chancellor on one deep pass and later fell down to cause an interception on another deep pass. Sanders, who averaged 13.8 per punt return last season, showed little return quickness in the Shrine game.

“He is a guy that without the return value is still highly valued at the receiver position,” said Steelers WRs coach Scottie Montgomery, who said that Sanders is “quick to the tuck.”

“He has the ability to catch the ball and get it north and south,” Montgomery said. “That’s something that I value quite a bit.”

Montgomery wouldn’t comment on Sanders’ two-game suspension in 2008, but Sanders explained – much to the Steelers’ PR staff’s obvious disdain – that he only was late to study hall twice and then was five minutes late to practice, thus violating the new SMU coach’s “three-strike rule.”

“The Shrine Game was a rough day,” Sanders explained. “At SMU I played in the slot, but in the Shrine Game we were all outside receivers. All the rest there had been outside receivers, but it took me a little while to adjust.”

Sanders ran the 40 in 4.44 (official) at the combine, but says he’s run as fast as 4.36.

“I like what Tomlin is about,” Sanders said of Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin. “People would ask me – because I visited eight teams – where was I on a comfort level? Where did I feel at home? I said Pittsburgh. I walked into the organization and it was very laid back. And I feel like that’s the kind of guy I am.”

Fast athletic OLBr who doesn't like contact. I know Gibson's game well. It could be a style thing with me. It's the reason I didn't like Parker. I don't like powerless scat backs. In the same sense, I like OLBrs who can run but can also lock horns and tangle in the trenches. Gibson will have to get alot tougher to play on this D.

could Gibson then be used mostly in obvious passing situations as a coverage LB?

Okay, those of you who remember me from the SteelersLIVE days will know that I'm a huge Tech fan and a two year Hokie Alum.

Been following Tech for 15 years now and while most would be excited to see their alma matter get some draft love from their favorite pro team, I just can't get into that groove.

To me, Tech players (especially defensive players) are not groomed to succeed in the pros. Bud Foster runs a 4-4-3 and each player plays such a unique role that... I just don't know. I hope I'm wrong.

One thing I do like about him is that he doesn't have an attitude like most Hokie football players. He's a grounded kid and has good work ethic.

I hope you are wrong also. Glad to see you posting! I remember you from the old board. You had some crazy avatar...a cartoon figure, right?
