Defensive lineman Cameron Heyward became the second Pittsburgh Steelers player to make the NFL Network list of Top 100 players Tuesday when he was ranked No. 88.

Outside linebacker T.J. Watt was selected No. 93 on Monday.

Heyward made the Top 100 for the third time in his eight-year NFL career. In 2018, Heyward was ranked No. 48 when he recorded a career-high 12 sacks.

Heyward’s sacks total dipped to eight last season, which might have factored into his lower ranking. Heyward also had three passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He contributed 10 tackles for loss and 18 quarterback hits.

The list continues Wednesday when players ranked Nos. 80-71 will be unveiled.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
