2022 RTSports Outlook

The Steelers picked Heyward in the sixth round of this year's draft. He projects to be a H-back at the pro level. He is a very good pass catcher and solid blocker. He will do better on shorter passes but is not going to make a lot of big plays down the field. His great hands help make up for some other downfalls in his game.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Heyward might get a few catches but will not get enough consistent work to help fantasy teams.

Player Notes

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie tight end Connor Heyward, the younger brother of Steelers pass-rusher Cameron Heyward, impressed in offseason workouts and showed chemistry with first-round quarterback Kenny Pickett during minicamp. The sixth-round selection is expected to be a hybrid tight end/fullback in an offense that values versatility in its skill players. The 23-year-old has mostly been working with the tight ends and receivers, so he's unlikely to be competing for the fullback spot with Derek Watt in training camp. It remains to be seen if Heyward will actually become a threat as a pass-catching tight end in Pittsburgh, but he's one to watch moving forward because of his versatility.
