Steelers Probably won't draft an OLB that's 6'5+, since typical Steelers OLBs are 6'-6'2 and 240-260LBs range.
I haven't but at the same time when we draft there will almost be too many good OLB prospects to not choose one. Worilds has been impressive (to me, not to others) but not impressive enough to rule out taking another difference maker at the position.

If we were to go safety or ILB, however, I'd still have no problem giving Worilds a full tryout as a starter if we cut ties with Harrison. Just saying we're in a position where the pass rush needs to improve sooner rather than later and with Worilds no sure thing, and an abundance of pass rushing talent available in the draft where we choose, it's likely we will go that route.
