Paul Worrilow has solified his starting spot at middle linebacker with his outstanding play in the first two preseason games. Worrilow had many question marks surrounding his play heading into 2o15, but has quickly put any doubts to rest. Worrilow already has a fumble return for a touchdown as well as several key pass breakups in pass coverage.

I don’t see any way Worrilow Loses his starting spot this year and may just have found himself in the perfect defensive scheme under head coach Dan Quinn. Look for Worrilow to have a big 2015 year and anchor what is expected to be a much improved line-backing core.
