The former un-drafted free-agent turned Atlanta Falcons defensive captain Paul Worrilow is heading into year three and should be extremely excited about playing under Quinn’s scheme. When dialed in, he can stop the run and drop into coverage and be effective.

After a great rookie season, Worrilow lacked help around him in 2014 and looked out of sorts at times. He lacked talent around him like he did as a rookie, but with newly acquired talent for 2015, Worrilow should flourish in 2015 as the Falcons’ middle linebacker.
