Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin Praises Rookie LB Jason Worilds

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - [Full Article]

Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin praised the team's second-round pick, Jason Worilds, who the coach said has made good progress converting from college defensive end to outside linebacker with the Steelers.

"There is very little hesitation in his movement," Tomlin said. "He is decisive, and that shows a level of understanding. I am excited about what he has done at that standpoint at this juncture.''

Fantasy Impact: 

While Worilds isn't going to be an immediate starter, he could be a valuable long-term asset in IDP leagues given the outside linebackers rack up a lot of sacks in Pittsburgh's 3-4 defense. He's a name to remember for the future, but the future isn't now.
