I think Harrison will still get better, but I am a little discouraged that I haven't noticed him get any significant pressure once this season. I would not worry about Woodley, he ALWAYS starts slow and by the end of the season will be absolutely wrecking.
Worilds hasn't shown he's the guy to take over after Harrison is done. While it is true that it's tough for young guys to win a job, Worilds hasn't a case to take over. On the right side, he's a liability playing against solid left tackles. He's just not strong or fast enough to make a significant case for him to start - ever. The left side is different, but with Woodley, it again makes him irrelevant.
Missing on a second round pick is rough, but I think we need to move on.
