Paul Worrilow: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Of all the breakout IDP stars of 2013, Worrilow was almost certainly the most surprising. An undrafted rookie out of Delaware, Worrilow was completely off the IDP radar at the season's start, serving as no more than the fourth linebacker for the Falcons. He had just 11 tackles heading into Week 8, at which point injuries piled up on the Atlanta starters. You could say those injuries allowed Worrilow to get his foot in the door, but it'd be more accurate to say he kicked it down. In his final 10 games of the year, Worrilow raced to 116 tackles, which would project to 185 tackles over a full season. Those numbers seem almost impossible to sustain, but Worrilow was incredibly consistent, exceeding double-digit tackles in six of the final nine weeks while dropping below nine tackles just once. Betting on a 10-game sample size for an LB1 investment is risky, but Worrilow's upside makes it a worthwhile gamble. He's locked in as a three-down player in Atlanta.
Will compete for a depth linebacker position in 2013.
