Pos: 
Tough, instinctive safety with a well-rounded game. Quickly picks up assignments, works well with cornerbacks and displays solid range. Fluidly changes direction, has a burst to every area of the field and goes sideline to sideline to make plays. Has a burst to the ball out of his plant, takes proper angles to the action and wraps up tackling. Keeps the action in front of him well and stays with assignments.
Neg: 
Lacks long speed and cannot recover. Not forceful on the blitz. Often gets tall in his tackling. Was suspended for the 2016 season for a violation of team rules.
Analysis: 
Worthington is a hard-working defender at safety with a complete game. He has speed limitations but offers possibilities as a traditional strong safety or in a zone system.
