PFF is finally giving Kenny Pickett some credit for his rookie season and ESPN lists three names to watch for the Steelers in the draft.
Sick Podcast: Sam Manson of Pro Football Focus gave Kenny Pickett his backing as the future for the Steelers at the quarterback position, despite a low draft ranking in 2022.
“I didn’t love Kenny Pickett as a prospect,” Monson said. “Like everyone else, I think, we didn’t love last year’s draft class at quarterback at all. We talked to a lot of people in the league that say they didn’t like any of these guys. If any of them has a shot, it’s Kenny Pickett. I’m not sure I was there, but I was surprised enough by him to say, ‘OK we can work with this.’ Especially with the likes of Diontae Johnson and George Pickens. There’s things to work with there. I think he showed enough that he can be the guy. I’m more concerned with … the scheme than Pickett’s ability.”
ESPN: Draft analysis Matt Miller went on SportsCenter on Monday to talk about the Steelers’ plans for their early-round picks. Among his suggestions were Penn State cornerback Joey Porter Jr., Tennessee tackle Darnell Wright and Boston College wide receiver Zay Flowers.
