Steelers’ TJ Watt Ranked As Best EDGE Rusher By Pro Football Focus

Coming off of a dominant Defensive Player of the Year Award that also saw him tie the NFL’s single-season sacks record, Pittsburgh Steelers’ star pass rusher TJ Watt was the clearcut choice for the top EDGE rusher in football, according to Pro Football Focus.

Working through positional rankings in the height of the offseason, PFF’s Sam Monson gave Watt the edge over Cleveland Browns’ star defensive end Myles Garrett, placing Watt atop the top tier at the position, which Monson dubbed the DPOY Candidate tier.

Along with Watt and Garrett, Dallas Cowboys’ linebacker Micah Parsons, Los Angeles Chargers’ EDGE Khalil Mack, the Bosa brothers in Joey and Nick, and Las Vegas Raiders’ breakout star Maxx Crosby held down spots in the top tier.
