Jason Worilds a former second round draft pick in 2010, has beat out rookie first round draft selection Jarivs Jones to become the Steelers week one starting outside linebacker. Worilds has the experience which allowed him to playing faster and process the defensive calls without hesitation throughout the offseason and into the preseason. Jones himself realizes that the Steelers very complex defense will take time to learn and he will make mistakes. I'm doing a great job, but at the same time I'm a rookie. Jones said. There's going to be a learning curve and I'm going to make some errors. I'm doing a good job of taking the process slow and learning. The starting position was up for grabs after James Harrison departed Pittsburgh for the Cincinnati Bengals. Worilds played behind Harrison and LaMarr Woodley for his first three years with the team starting ten games and recording ten sacks during that time. Worilds could not have peaked at a more perfect time since he is in a contract year and with the addition of Jones will likely not be offered to stay in Pittsburgh. Jones will likely unseat Worilds at some point during the season once he becomes more familiar with Dick LeBeau's defense. Make no mistake Steelers fans when Jones gets on the field you will not be disappointed. Jones dominated the SEC in his senior year recording 17.5 sacks, 24.5 tackles for loss and seven forced fumbles. It may just like numbers on a paper, however it shows the type of motor he possesses and his ability to get up field in pass rush situations. Jones has tremendous upside and if he remains healthy will likely become one of the leagues top pass rushing linebackers.
