NFL Draft: Cameron Heyward Vs. Gabe Carimi (Video)

In case you're wondering what the Steelers' top pick in the NFL Draft, Ohio State defensive end Cameron Heyward, might look like on the Steelers' line here in a year or two, here's some video. In this first one, he takes on Wisconsin's Gabe Carimi, who was selected by the Chicago Bears with the No. 29 pick in the draft, and it looks like Carimi is a tough matchup for him, although it certainly doesn't help that Carimi is allowed to get away with holding. (Heyward is No. 97 in the video.)

Here's some terrific footage of Heyward against the University Of Illinois, against whom he appears to have less trouble.

Here's an interview in which Heyward talks about his similarities to his father, Craig "Ironhead" Heyward, and how he tries to carry on his father's legacy. The interviewer notes that he seems like a really fun guy off the field, in contrast to his play on the field. Given his personality and his local connections, it looks like Heyward will be a popular player in Pittsburgh.
