Thread: Will Jarvis Jones win the competition vs. Worlids for starter @ OLB

  1. #11
    Worilds is better at this point. I still think Worilds becomes a good player this year. Woodley is the problem.

    You nailed it that Woodley is probably the biggest question mark on the D. You have to hope that Woodley has pride because his contract makes it impossible to cut him.

    If Jarvis Jones is the man the Steelers thought he would be ... He should beat out Worilds. I think it would be a negative any way you look at it if Jones doesn't beat out Worilds at some point in 2013. Would Worilds be playing that good or Jones struggling? Take it from there where 2014 comes in.

    I think he will push both Worilds and Woodley. Heck it would be great if Worilds could use the motivation and beat him out and become a great player. OLB is such an important position it would be great to have 3 really good guys at the position.
    1. CB Marcus Peters Washington 6/190
    2. OG Josue Matias Florida State 6-6/320
    3. OLB Geneo Grissom Oklahoma 6-4/250
    4. DL Ellis McCarthy UCLA 6-5/330
    5. TE Jeff Heurman Ohio State 6-5/255
    6. FS Adrian Amos Penn State 6/200
    7. DT Terry Williams East Carolina 6-1/340

    UDFA
    DB Justin Cox Mississippi St. 6-2/190
    OLB Davis Tull Chattanooga 6-2/242

    Troy Polamalu didn't beat out his guy as a rook... they all come along at their own pace...

    I will be the first one to say that he will be the week one starter. I believe that the team views Worilds much the same way as a guy like Foote or Gay. They would be fine with starting him if needed, but do not view him as the ROLB of the future. I see an open competition with the more talented player winning out.

    In comparing them, Jones is seen as a top 10 talent who slid due to medical concerns. If those concerns don't come out in camp then they are not concerns for week one. Worilds is seen as a guy who the Steelers overdrafted in the second.

    Worilds was a player who came in and had to learn the position. He has shown more on the other side than the right side. While Jones has never played under Lebeau, he was a big playmaker at 3-4 OLB. His transition should be easier than most rooks.

    If Jones has no problems with the system then the more talented player should win out, and that is Jones.

    OLB JARVIS JONES GEORGIA SEC

    DRAFTED BY: STEELERS ROUND1 PICK17 OVERALL 17

    DRAFT ANALYSIS:

    "He's a pretty good fit there in Pittsburgh. If you look at the Pittsburgh edge at linebackers, this kid fits from a body type and an explosion perspective. I think he'll get on the field and challenge Jason Worilds for the starting spot." -- Mike Mayock

    What if Worilds comes in and puts up 10+ sacks? What if Jones shows Woodley (ala 2007-4 sacks) like potential as a rookie. You don't think they let Woodley and that contract walk in 2014 if he stinks it up again?

    We'll need Jones, Worilds, and Woodley to all play well to make the playoffs this year.
    Here comes the BOOM!
