Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver George Pickens could have just made the catch of the entire year.
The rookie wideout out of Georgia made a fantastic one-handed catch during Thursday’s game contrary to the Cleveland Browns. It had been so remarkable that he’s now drawing comparisons to Odell Beckham Jr.
On Nov. 23, 2014, Beckham burst onto the NFL scene as a rookie out of LSU, and he made his mark when he made a ridiculous leaping one-handed catch ultimately zone for a touchdown contrary to the Dallas Cowboys.
The Beckham and Pickens catches have become similar, and today fans will undoubtedly be debating about that is better for at the very least the next couple of days.
Through Pittsburgh’s first two games of the growing season, Pickens had caught just two passes for 26 yards on five targets. Following the team’s loss to the brand new England Patriots, he told reporters he was open “90 percent of that time period.”
Given his spectacular catch on Thursday night, Steelers quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is required to have the ball in his hands more regularly.
