    Heyward, who became the NFL's highest-paid defensive player over 30 in the offseason, makes the Pro Bowl for the fourth year in a row. He has 42 total tackles with three sacks, three passes defensed and his first career interception in 13 games this season.

    Cam Heyward was named as a second-team All-Pro interior defensive lineman for the 2020 season following another excellent regular season for the Pittsburgh Steelers in which he recorded 54 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, four sacks, three passes defensed and his first career interception.

    It's the third time in four years that Heyward – now in his 10th NFL season – has earned AP All-Pro honors, as he was a first-team All-Pro in both 2017 and 2019.

    Ranking the best NFL Draft picks of all time: Cameron Heyward headlines top five taken at No. 31

    With the 2021 NFL Draft almost here, let's look at the five best players in NFL history taken at No. 31 overall

    1. Cameron Heyward, defensive lineman
    2001 2011 NFL Draft: Round 1, No. 31 (Ohio State)
    Team(s): Pittsburgh Steelers (2011-Present)

    It takes a lot to stand out among the many great defensive linemen in Steelers history, but Heyward has done his part. In 10 NFL seasons, Heyward has notched 58 sacks and 86 tackles for loss, along with 138 quarterback hits. He's been named a Pro Bowler four times and an All-Pro thrice, including two times to the first team.

    Heyward began his career as a rotational contributor along Pittsburgh's defensive front, but he's been a full-time starter for the last eight years, and has been the anchor of the Steelers defense for every one of them. His combination of size (6-foot-5, 295 pounds), strength, length, and quickness has made him a terror for opposing offensive linemen to deal with, and has allowed the Steelers to shift him all over their defensive front. He's lined up on the edge, as a tackle, on the nose, and even as a sort-of linebacker in amoeba-esque fronts.

    He's ranked inside the top 10 in Pro Football Focus' grading of interior defensive linemen three times in the past four seasons, including second behind only the great Aaron Donald in 2019. Equally proficient against both the pass and the run, he is still near the top of his game, with no real drop-off in sight. (He also notched his first career interception this past season, so perhaps we have more of those to look forward to.) Signed with Pittsburgh through the 2024 season, Heyward should have several more productive years in his future. Already named the best No. 31 pick in our project last summer, Heyward should have every opportunity to solidify that standing in the future.

    Obviously I didn't proof read my post (i.e. link) any better than CBS Sports proof read their article (i.e. draft class). However, the good news is that I'm not wasting my time here; at least somebody is actually reading my posts........8D

    And the sack was a Steeler milestone.

    Just sayin': You have to wonder how many sacks the "Steel Curtain" defense linemen actually had.

    What is it about the Steelers that makes them so dirty? Is it coached, or is that how players will naturally play if the refs give them the Pittsburgh treatment and swallow whistles?

    Also calling that a punch is weak... That's falling and putting a little extra into putting his weight on him.

    live, I thought it was a dirty play. he was already on top of Herbert, and then he got up and then threw his fist down, he definately wasn't "falling and putting a little extra weight on him"
