Worilds is not a slam-dunk, guaranteed star going forward.

I get the concern over Worilds' injuries. I don't think his injuries have the same history of recurrence compared to Woodley's, and i have the thought that he may not be as comparatively injury-prone as Woodley has been. If Woodley could stay in top linebacker shape and stay on the field, then he could be the beast. Past is not predicting that future for Woodley, in my view.
Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.
I saw on one of the forums where Worilds was ranked #2 in the NFL of all of the OLB Free Agents going into the off season. It's unlikely we will be able to sign if even if we wanted to.
Looks like we are stuck with Woodley.
Not sure how dumb of a question this is, but could Woodley play DE opposite Heyward?
Clearly he would have to add 20 pounds. But if we get to the draft and, say, Barr or Mack were sitting there at 15, could we pull the trigger on one of those guys.
I feel like having Woodley opposite Heyward with Mclendon at NT could be an interesting dynamic combined with Jarvis and Barr/Mack at the OLB spots(because Worilds would probably be gone). Maybe get Keisel back at a vet min. to be a back up. Or let Keisel go to free up some cap space.
Then address a CB/S in Rnd. 2.
im not sure i said anything close to worilds being a slam dunk star.
woodley playing 1/2 to 2/3 of a season, a bad jarvis jones and a rookie that wont be any good or see the field for a couple years will without a doubt be the cheaper way to go but it sure wont be the best.
Its football.... reat players on D always have a higher chance of getting injured because they are always in the mix. We dont pay Woodley and Troy for their injuries, we paid them for their talents when healthy. It would be great if we could see the future and pay based on our crystal ball.
