Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt has been voted the 25th-best player in the league by his peers on the annual NFL Top 100 list.
Watt emerged as one of the league’s best edge rushers in his third season out of Wisconsin, finishing third in Defensive Player of the Year voting and earning First-Team All-Pro honors. He dominated in 2019, posting 14.5 sacks and 14 tackles-for-loss. Watt also intercepted two passes and forced a league-leading right fumbles.
His playmaking ability helped the Steelers lead the league in sacks (54) and takeaways (38) a year ago.
Watt’s ranking is a 68-spot improvement from last season, and he has been voted ahead of some of the league’s best edge rushers, including Myles Garrett, Joey Bosa and Von Miller.
The star defender also finished 20 spots ahead of his brother J.J., who clocked in at No. 45.
