As a junior, Wort recorded 213 tackles, 15 of which were for loss, four sacks, and three interceptions. As a senior, despite playing in only seven games, Wort recorded 62 tackles and had two interception returns for touchdowns. Wort was selected to participate in the ESPN Under Armor all-star game.



In 2009, his first year with Oklahoma, Wort took a redshirt after suffering a season ending injury in training camp. In 2010, Wort played in 12 games, and earned nine starts at middle linebacker. He had at least seven tackles in five games, and finished the year off with 66 tackles (7.5 for loss). Wort had his best season in 2011, where he earned an honorable mention on the All-Big 12 team. Wort recorded 71 tackles (4.5 for loss), 3.5 sacks, two interceptions, and two pass breakups. In 2012, Wort played in all 13 games, but saw his playing time diminish. On the season he recorded 53 tackles (5.5 for loss), two sacks, and one pass breakup.

Analysis

Strengths

Instinctive. Reads keys well, and times up his blitzes very well. Fast in short areas, closes well. Shows decent range. Aggressive player. Physical tackler. Looks comfortable in zone coverage. Gets proper depth on his drops.

Weaknesses

Lacks adequate size and bulk. Always banged up. Doesn't have much length. Gets locked onto blocks and struggles to disengage. Lags behind in man coverage. Doesn't have great tackling technique.

NFL Comparison

Brad Jones

Bottom Line

Wort had a successful college career, but appears to lack the same tools to succeed in the NFL. He's a bit of a 'tweener in the NFL. He will have to prove he can contribute on special teams in order to earn a roster spot.
