Virginia Tech junior defensive end Jason Worilds will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft.

Worilds had 49 tackles this season, including 11 for loss and 4.5 sacks.

As a redshirt sophomore, Worilds had a career season with 62 tackles, 18 for loss, and eight sacks. 

Despite his relentless motor on the field and his ability to disrupt plays without getting statistical credit, Worilds has struggled with injuries during his career at Tech.

Worilds got a medical redshirt after having season-ending shoulder surgery in 2006. He battled a sore shoulder throughout 2008, eventually having to sit out Tech's Orange Bowl victory.

Worilds underwent surgery again after that season, and missed offseason workouts and spring practice leading up to 2009.
