The former defensive tackle at Ohio State is the son of former Pittsburgh Panthers and NFL running back Craig “Ironhead” Heyward. The 6’5, 288-pound giant is a part of the Steelers youth movement on defense, especially the down-lineman.

The 22-year-old who was born in the Steel City, signed in time to join the rest of the team for practice on Friday.

As expected, former Ohio State defensive lineman Cameron Heyward was selected 31st overall by the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night in the 2011 NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Heyward is the 69th Buckeye overall to be drafted in the first round and the 17th since 2000, the second most among FBS schools during that time. He also is the 74th Buckeyes to be drafted overall since 2000, the most among any FBS school. He is the 14th first-round pick in the Jim Tressel era.

Rounds 2-3 continue Friday evening beginning at 6 p.m. ET while rounds 4-7 will take place Saturday beginning at noon.

Heyward was a Playboy All-American, a Lombardi Award semifinalist and a Lott Trophy quarterfinalist in 2010. A first team all-Big Ten selection by both coaches and the media in 2010, Heyward started 46 career games, totaling 163 tackles, 37.5 TFL and 15.5 sacks.

There is no doubt that Ohio State defensive end Cameron Heyward will be a #1 draft choice in the upcoming NFL Draft.

However, this past week, his workouts in getting prepared for the big day, took a detour to surgery to repair his injured elbow.

The graduating senior suffered a hyperextended elbow in the January 4 Sugar Bowl against Arkansas.

Heyward has been working out in the Phoenix, Arizona, area. His support team decided it was best if he had surgery to fix the injured elbow.

The surgery was done at orthropedic specialist Dr. James Andrews’ facility in Alabama.

Whether Heyward participates in the NFL scouting combine workouts in February remains to be seen at this time.

All of those goals are still within reach, however, there are several awards that he could possibly win as well.

Heyward has been selected as one of 12 semifinalists for the 41st Rotary Lombardi Award.

Ten defensive and two offensive players comprise the group, with the Big Ten leading the way with four players, followed by the Big 12 with three, the SEC and the ACC with two each and one from the Mountain West.
