Former Ohio State defensive lineman Cameron Heyward has been recognized as one of the NFL's best once again.
The former Buckeye, who is now entering his ninth NFL season – all with the Pittsburgh Steelers – is ranked as the league's 88th-best player on this year's NFL's Top 100, the annual countdown of the league's best players as voted on by the players and televised by NFL Network.
Heyward is the first Buckeye to appear on this year's countdown, which is being revealed over the course of 10 straight nights – with one episode airing each night at 9 p.m. from Monday through next Wednesday – on NFL Network.
After checking in at 48th on last year's countdown, Heyward made his second straight Pro Bowl in 2018. He played in all 16 of the Steelers' regular-season games this past season and recorded 51 total tackles, eight sacks, three pass deflections and one forced fumble.
