Kenny Pickett seemingly has earned the trust and admiration of his teammates in the Steelers locker room. So much so, that some of the comparisons from guys that have been other places stick out. Isaac Seumalo noted that Pickett reminded him of Jalen Hurts in a few ways. Now, cornerback Levi Wallace, who played with Josh Allen, sees a lot of Allen in Pickett.
Appearing on Good Morning Football on Friday, Wallace was asked about what he saw in Kenny Pickett and what could aid him in a second year leap. From there, the former Bills cornerback noted that Pickett reminds him a lot of his former teammate, Allen, who ascended to one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks.
“I think the first week he was up, I think, was probably Buffalo week. And me and him was sitting next to each other in team meetings. I mean, first row, he is right next to me,” Wallace said. “I’ve seen him come in and just be hungry and just wanna learn the game. And obviously, there’s a transition period when you’re a rookie, but that first week in Buffalo, I’m trying to go home and get some and get some rest, and he wants to stay and watch film and ask me questions about Buffalo’s defense, cause he just wants to win so bad. He reminds me a lot of Josh [Allen], as much as he’s a competitor, the way he prepares. I mean the guy, he just always wants to keep doing it, right? And if we could be out there for three hours and keep doing reps on offense, I know he would.”
