2022 NFL Draft

Steelers QB Kenny Pickett Visits Familiar Pittsburgh Places



The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett with the No. 20 pick of the first round of the NFL Draft Thursday night.

Pickett touched down in Pittsburgh Friday, the Steelers introduced him and gave him the No. 8 jersey, the one he wore in college.

On Saturday, Pickett toured around the Pittsburgh area, one he knows well already.

Pickett started off at Carlow University, where he and fellow Steelers players punter Pressley Harvin III and linebacker Derrek Tusk ran drills and played football with kids of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh at their Draft Day event.

Pickett then made his way to Kennywood Amusement Park, where he met Kenny the Kangaroo, took pictures and rode the Steel Curtain, the Steelers themed roller coaster.
