RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Heyward has not missed a game since being selected with the 31st overall pick in the 2011 draft and his production continues to trend in the right direction. He led the Steelers' defensive lineman in virtually every IDP statistical category last season, accumulating 59 tackles, five sacks and seven passes defensed. The team already exercied the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, so Heyward should continue to be an every-down lineman with room to grow statistically.
Heyward has been a disappointment since being selected in round one of the 2011 draft. He'll return to back-up Brett Keisel this season.
Cameron is a powerful defensive lineman that is a perfect fit for Pittsburgh's 3-4 scheme. The Steelers have the luxury of taking their time and allowing him to learn behind Brett "the Diesel" Keisel.
