Published

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick has been named the league’s 35th-best player as of the NFL Top 100 list.

Released annually and voted on exclusively by the players, the NFL Top 100 list ranks the best players in the league from the previous season. Fitzpatrick made one of the biggest jumps of all up the list, as he was in ranked last year.

Originally drafted out of Alabama by the Miami Dolphins, Fitzpatrick flourished after being traded to the Steelers for a first round pick back in September of last year. He proved his worth almost instantly, becoming one of the team’s best playmakers on the defensive side.

Fitzpatrick earned First-Team All-Pro honors in 2019, recording 57 tackles, five interceptions, two fumble recoveries and two defensive scores over 14 games with the Steelers. His coverage and playmaking ability on the backend helped the Pittsburgh defense lead the league in sacks (54) and takeaways (38).

Fitzpatrick was the second Steeler to receive NFL Top 100 honors, with defensive end Cam Heyward previously clocking in at No. 84.

Outside linebacker T.J. Watt was also named to the exclusive list Tuesday night, coming in as the highest-rated Steeler at No. 25.
