2022 Pre-Season Rank #24, 2021 Pre-Season Rank #68, 2020 Pre-Season Rank #102.
T.J. Watt has rocketed through this rank, winning the Defensive Player of the Year in 2021 and twice led the NFL in Sacks and Tackles for Loss. Still south of 30, Watt added his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl last year, despite only playing in ten Games. Watt is in his peak, and is already in the history books having tied Michael Strahan with the single-season sack record of 22.5. Watt currently exceeds the hefty AV/G for Linebackers and is on pace to follow his brother J.J. into Canton.
