3. Cameron Heyward

Here’s my dark horse for this year’s Pro Bowl.  Heyward was really starting to break out for the Steelers in the second half of the season in 2013.  Heyward went into Beast Mode in a loss against the Dolphins when he garnered 10 total tackles, which included a sack (his fourth in six weeks).  I full expect Heyward to continue to improve and capitalize off of the good mojo from the end of last season.  Heyward just might find himself among guys like Greg Hardy, Cameron Wake.  He’s going to have to have one hell of a season in order to impress whomever the Team Captains are this year.  But, I’m going to put my faith in Heyward that irregardless of an actual Pro Bowl selection, he’s going to put up Pro Bowl-like numbers.
