NFL: Scouting Combine

Michigan State tight end Connor Heyward, a Peachtree Ridge grad, runs the 40-yard dash during the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Heyward brothers will reunite in Pittsburgh.

Connor Heyward was drafted Saturday in the sixth round (No. 208 overall) of the NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, and his future teammates will include his older brother Cameron Heyward, a five-time Pro Bowl and four-time All-Pro selection on the defensive line. Both brothers were high school standouts at Peachtree Ridge. He is the fifth NFL Draft pick in Peachtree Ridge's history.
