Steelers Pouncey, DeCastro, Tuitt, McCloud Receive All-Pro Votes



Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J Watt, safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and defensive end Cam Heyward were each named All-Pros on Friday, but they were not the only ones to receive votes.

Steelers guard David DeCastro, center Maurkice Pouncey, defensive end Stephon Tuitt and punt returner Ray-Ray McCloud all received All-Pro votes as well.

DeCastro paced the four, receiving in eight-and-a-half votes at left guard. He started the last 13 games after missing the first three with a knee injury. DeCastro was twice previously named First-Team All-Pro in 2015 and 2017.

Pouncey finished fifth among centers with four votes. He has been named First-Team All-Pro twice previously, and been selected to the Pro Bowl every season of his career except for his injury shortened 2013.

Tuitt earned a single vote as an interior defensive lineman. He has had a monster 2020 season, recording eleven sacks, ten tackles-for-loss and 25 quarterback hits. Tuitt has never been named an All-Pro or even been selected to a Pro Bowl.

McCloud received three votes. He finished the season fourth in punt return average at 10.3 yards per return. McCloud also averaged 23.1 yards per kickoff return. The New England Patriots’ Gunner Olszewski earned First-Team honors.
