With the 2020 regular season now officially over, it is time for different outlets to start handing out their postseason awards. While players like T.J. Watt of the Pittsburgh Steelers hopes to be named the Defensive Player of the Year in 2020, sites like Pro Football Focus (PFF) start handing out their own version of awards.

In their latest edition of their All-Pro honors, it was surprising to see only on member of the 2020 Pittsburgh Steelers get All-Pro honors. That would be none other than T.J. Watt. See what they had to say about the EDGE pass rusher:

EDGE T.J. WATT, PITTSBURGH STEELERS

For the second year in a row, T.J. Watt has been a devastating edge rusher and has a very real Defensive Player of the Year case. With 73 total pressures, only Shaquill Barrett (76) has more among edge rushers, and Watt has hit the quarterback 27 more times between sacks and knockdowns. Watt has the second-best pass-rush win rate (23.7%) among edge rushers, but also has five batted passes and even an interception to his name, dropping under a Daniel Jones quick pass in Week 1 to pick the pass off and cause a turnover.

There were two members of the Steelers who earned 2nd team honors, and those were Cam Heyward on the defensive interior, and Ray-Ray McCloud as a return specialist. Wondering where Minkah Fitzpatrick, and others, were? Check out who PFF chose for their 2020 All-Pro team.
