RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Son of Ironhead took the next step in his development last season, making a big impact behind the line of scrimmage with career highs in tackles for loss (11) and sacks (7.5). Heyward is among the more stable D-Line IDP options, as he's locked into the lead role on the Pittsburgh defensive line and has a 50-tackle floor even if he plays only about 800 snaps. As a 3-4 end, though, Heyward might play in too much traffic for high upside as a tackler or pass rusher.

2014

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.

2013

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.

2012

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.
