Steelers defensive linemen Cam Heyward and Stephon Tuitt are among the highest-rated defensive linemen in the EA Sports Madden NFL 22 game.
Heyward was given a 92 overall rating, so far behind only outside linebacker T.J. Watt’s 94 on the Steelers, and Tuitt has an 89 overall rating.
The top defensive lineman is Los Angeles Rams star Aaron Donald, who was given a rare 99 for the sixth straight year. Browns end Myles Garrett (98), Eagles tackle Fletcher Cox (94), Cardinals end J.J. Watt (94), Saints end Cameron Jordan (93), Chiefs tackle Chris Jones (92), Colts tackle Deforest Buckner (92), Vikings tackle Michael Pierce (91), Ravens end Calais Campbell (90) and 49ers end Nick Bosa (90) round out the top 10.
Tuitt is tied for the 11th-best spot with Packers tackle Denny Clark. The Steelers are the only team with more than one defensive lineman listed in the top 12.
The rest of the position groups’ ratings will be released throughout the week.
