Watt, who was recently named 2020 Team MVP, is a first-team All-Pro for the second consecutive year, just like Fitzpatrick.
Watt finished the season leading the NFL in sacks (15), tackles for a loss (23), and quarterback hits (41). He is considered a strong candidate to win NFL Defensive Player of the Year after finishing third in DPOY voting in 2019.
His promotional wingmen include his brother J.J. Watt (who has won DPOY three times, in 2012, 2014 and 2015) and Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, who recently drew attention to the strength of Watt’s candidacy by saying, “T.J. is visiting from another planet, to be quite honest with you. He has freakishly unique talent coupled with freakishly unique work habits and mindset, and it produces what you guys witness every week, which in my opinion, is Defensive Player of the Year quality.”
Minkah Fitzpatrick and Cameron Heyward
As for Fitzpatrick, finished the 2020 season as Pittsburgh’s leading tackler with 74. He also contributed 11 passes defensed, tackle for a loss, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He also had four interceptions, including one that he returned for a touchdown against Cleveland in Week 6.
Fitzpatrick finished in a tie with Budda Baker of the Arizona Cardinals at his position, so both were named to the team.
