Kenny Pickett is everything they thought Trevor Lawrence will be and much more. The ball placement is incredible, directly on the numbers each time. He appears like vintage Brady #Steelers

The Steelers selected Pickett in the initial round of the 2022 NFL draft out of Pittsburgh, where he previously an extraordinary 2021 season, completing 67.2 percent of his passes for 4,319 yards and 42 touchdowns against seven interceptions.

There have been concerns about Pickett’s smaller hand size and how it could impact his play at the NFL level entering the draft. However, it’s clear that he’s had no issues for the reason that department so far.

Even though Pickett isn’t named Pittsburgh’s Week 1 starter, almost always there is the opportunity he’ll get the opportunity to start out sooner or later through the 2022 season, particularly if Trubisky struggles.

Furthermore, at least at this time, it appears like the Steelers have discovered their quarterback into the future in Pickett. If he doesn’t start to see the field in 2022, there is no doubt he’ll at some time in the not too distant future.
