The Panthers said they did their due diligence on West Virginia CB Daryl Worley, their second-round pick who faced a battery charge on a woman in 2014.
From an organization that suffered through waking P.R. nightmare Greg Hardy, it was a curious choice. But GM Dave Gettleman said the team thoroughly vetted Worley, including sitting him down for a meeting with owner Jerry Richardson. "It was a simple situation where it was wrong place at the wrong time. There were nothing malicious about the incident," Worley said during a conference call. "All 32 teams have seen the videotape. They have the official court documents, which I gave to them, where there was nothing malicious about it." The episode, which occurred in a nightclub, has been expunged from Worley's record. "Nothing like that is ever going to be a problem heading forward," he said. Sun, May 1, 2016 02:06:00 PM

Panthers selected West Virginia CB Daryl Worley with the No. 77 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Worley (6'1/204) turned pro after starting for 2 1/2 seasons at West Virginia, tallying ten career INTs and 9.5 tackles for loss. He earned first-team All-Big 12 as a 2015 junior. A long-armed (33 3/8") ballhawk, Worley tested out like a safety in Indy, running 4.64 with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump, before improving his forty time to 4.48 at the Mountaineers' Pro Day. Worley has an intriguing blend of size, movement ability, and ball skills. He'll team with second-rounder James Bradberry to compete to replace Josh Norman.

West Virginia CB Daryl Worley recently visited the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals.

The Eagles likely didn't need to count that against their 30-prospect limit because Worley is a native of Philadelphia. Worley also has private workouts booked with the Carolina Panthers, Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars. The 6-foot-1, 204-pounder ran a sluggish 4.64 seconds in the forty at the Combine but improved to 4.48 seconds at his Pro Day.

West Virginia CB Daryl Worley ran the 40-yard dash in 4.58 seconds during Monday's Pro Day.

According to his mother, Worley was actually one of several players who tested while sick at the NFL Scouting Combine. Perhaps that explains his rather sluggish 4.64 seconds in the 40-yard dash in Indianapolis. The 6-foot-1, 204-pounder was not a fan of that time and hoped to run faster when Pro Day festivities got underway. Mission accomplished. Said Worley, "I did pretty good at everything today. The only thing I worried about was my first 40, but I hit a pretty solid time the second time around. Everyone seemed happy with it." West Virginia HC Dana Holgorsen spoke out about his draft prospects at the end of the 2015 campaign and predicted Worley would not be drafted if he declared, though NFL Media's Lance Zierlein wrote earlier this offseason that he sees Worley as a potential Day 3 selection due to his aggressive nature and quick reaction times.

NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein noted that West Virginia CB Daryl Worley has "stellar reactive quickness with hands to pluck interceptions after undercutting routes."

In addition to Worley's smooth reaction skills, the 6-foot-1, 199-pounder "redirects receivers with aggressive shoves" and "carries enough long speed to run with Baylor's Corey Coleman," Zierlein wrote. He suggests that "[a] move to a defense that employs more press and trail technique should benefit him and teams looking for range and instincts could try him at free safety." The analyst pegs him as a potential Day 3 selection and compares him to Tray Walters, who was drafted by the Ravens in the fourth round of the 2015 draft.

West Virginia junior CB Daryl Worley has declared for the 2016 NFL Draft.

Worley missed out on the team's 43-42 win over Arizona State in the Cactus Bowl due to a missed academic deadline. And now his career with the Mountaineers is over and done with. In December, the 6-foot-1, 199-pound junior addressed draft speculation, saying that "it’s something we’ve all thought about since we started playing. When you feel like it’s in arm’s reach, you definitely feel like you should go grab it. But at the end of the day, there are a lot of things you have to weigh. I’ll talk to my coaches and my family about all the things that factor into it." He requested an evaluation from the NFL Draft Advisory Board in December. Said report suggested he should return to school, but Worley won't be following that advice. He won't be following the advice of HC Dana Holgorsen either, as Holgorsen indicated that he didn't believe Worley or RB's Wendell Smallwood and Rushel Shell would be drafted. While this is dark and ominous, Worley did record six picks in 2015.

West Virginia junior CB Daryl Worley, freshman WR Jovon Durante, senior DL Eric Kinsey and freshman S Kevin Williams will miss the Motel 6 Cactus Bowl against Arizona State due to academic issues.

Worley's loss is tough to make up. The 6-foot-1, 199-pound junior was an All-Big 12 first-teamer this past season on the strength of six interceptions and 12 pass breakups. HC Dana Holgorsen indicated that Worley was late turning in homework and missed the NCAA bowl certification deadline. Had he made that deadline, he would have been deemed eligible. The other three Mountaineers in question, though, have all been deemed academically ineligible through and through.

West Virginia RB Wendell Smallwood, RB Rushel Shell and CB Justin Worley requested evaluations from the NFL Draft Advisory Board.

Dana Holgorsen was quite honest with reporters earlier in the week when asked about players requesting draft grades. He admitted those players were anxious and interested, but added, in a very honest moment, that none would be drafted and should return to school. Holgorsen is known for these moments, among other things, but the statement might not be far from the truth.

West Virginia junior CB Daryl Worley had an interception in Saturday's win over Texas Tech.

Coming into the year, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded the 6-foot-1, 199-pound Worley as an "early third" round pick. Pauline wrote that the 6-foot-1, 199-pound junior "offers the size and ball skills to be a starter at the next level." His interception against Texas Tech on Saturday was his third of the season. He also recorded seven tackles in the game to give him 28 for the 2015 campaign. With solid measurables, he could push himself toward a possible Day 2 selection in the 2016 NFL Draft (assuming he decides to declare).

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline believes that "another good season" will push West Virginia junior CB Daryl Worley "into the top 45 if he measures/times well."

"Daryl Worley offers the size and ball skills to be a starter at the next level. He shuts down opponents who only occasionally throw in his direction," Pauline wrote. Worley posted 52 tackles, with 44 solo stops, 4.5 tackles for loss, four pass breakups and three interceptions last season. However, with violence against women such a hot topic in today's NFL, teams will probably want to know more about the incident that caused Worley to be suspended for two games in 2014. Worley was arrested for battery, after he was accused of grabbing a female around the neck and pushing her down at a nightclub. Pauline currently gives the 6-foot-1, 199-pound Worley "an early third" round grade.

West Virginia sophomore CB Daryl Worley was reinstated to the football program by HC Dana Holgorsen on Wednesday.

According to a school release, Worley "pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from an incident back in September." The school's top corner was accused of "grabbing a female around the neck and pushing her down" during an incident at a bar. He missed the last two games because of the incident. We have not found any news stating if Worley will play immediately, as WVU faces Texas Tech on Saturday.

Morgantown police are serving a warrant on Wednesday charging suspended WVU sophomore CB Daryl Worley with battery, according to Metro News' Hoppy Kercheval.

Kercheval explains that Worley is accused of "grabbing a female around the neck and pushing her down" during an incident at Lux bar. The victim was not seriously hurt. Worley was indefinitely suspended from the team earlier this week. West Virginia hosts Oklahoma this week.

West Virginia sophomore CB Daryl Worley has been suspended for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

No further details were disclosed. Worley started all three games this season, recording two interceptions during that time. Senior Ishmael Banks had been suspended for the first three games, so his expected return comes at the right time. West Virginia hosts Oklahoma this week.
