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

    Based on what he did in college Jarvis has the potencial but moreso he played OLB and won't have to convert from DE like Worlids and Woodley had to. That in itself should make the transition to the Pro's a little easier since he won't have to change positions.
    Should he win out against Worlids it would give us depth behind Woodley as Worlids is better suited for that side, but at this point Jones has to prove himself in camp, the preseason to be considered a starter which would be rare in the Steelers defense.
    Just a guess, he may split time with Worlids until he can win that position outright and be that bonus player for us that has immediate impact.

    We still need a Safety and ILB and help on the offense with a RB, WR, but is it me or does anyone feel we still need help on our D-line? If we don't get another D-lineman, I wonder if there will be any changes on who plays where with our current group?

    Btw, Congrats to all of you who picked Jones @ 17!

    Jones will be starting by no later than October of this year. That's my guess.

    I suspect that Worilds wins the competition initially, but that Jones gets playing time early in passing situations, and ends up with significant time this year when Worilds and/or Woodley get hurt.

    Was the date of Jarvis's pro day before or after TS told Harrison they didn't want him back? If it was before, the Steelers took a nice gamble that paid off. Just curious.

    As a rook, I doubt he'll start... He'll have a lot of situational time...

    That's what I'm thinking. Remember, Worlids might be good at rushing the passer but issues against the run where Jones seems to do both well, that could be a deciding factor as the season moves on.

    Harrison released March 9, Jones Pro day March 21. Had to check... Would have been interesting if the dates were switched.

    No because Worilds is much better than anyone wants to give him credit for. he will come to camp in shape and ready to compete. Can we say the same about Woodley?

    Agreed. The season starts with Woodley and Worilds outside, then Woodley sprains an ovary in week 3 and takes his seat on the bench, becoming the Steelers' version of Wally Pipp.

    My guess is that Worilds gets the nod in the base to start the year and they have Jones focus on something like the Nickle package. Learn one position really well and be the first option there. First back up at both OLBs.
