PFF: Steelers DL Cam Heyward Highest-Graded Defender in NFL



Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward has had a dominant start to the 2021 season, and Pro Football Focus’ grading backs it up.

According to PFF, Heyward is the highest-graded defensive player in the NFL at 92.3.

Heyward is even graded higher than Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who is universally regarded as the league’s best interior defender.

Heyward has logged two sacks, five tackles-for-loss and five passes defended thus far this season.

The former Ohio State Buckeyes has earned two All-Pro nods and four Pro Bowl selections over his eleven-year career.
