The 2023 NFL All-Pro team has been released, and two Steelers were named as First-Team All-Pro, including edge rusher T.J. Watt and safety/special teamer Miles Killebrew. Watt and Cleveland Browns’ star Myles Garrett earned the honors as the two edge rushers, while Killebrew got the nod as the First-Team All-Pro special teamer.
It is the fourth time in Watt’s career that he has been named First-Team All-Pro and the first time that Killebrew has earned the honor. Among players with 300+ snaps on special teams this season, Killebrew was PFF’s second-highest contributor with a 90.4 grade. He also ranked second in the league with 11 solo tackles, and was one of six players to register a blocked punt this year.
Watt led the NFL in the 2023 NFL season sacks with 19, becoming the first player in NFL history to lead the league in sacks three times since the stat started being tracked in 1982. NFL in tackles for loss.
In addition, Watt was fourth in the NFL in tackles for loss and third in forced fumbles. The 2021 NFL Defensive Player of the Year is one of the top candidates to win the award once again, being named First-Team All-Pro is a nice feather in his cap to defend that argument.
