Who is Kenny Pickett

Coming out of high school at Ocean Township(NJ), Pickett was the 25th ranked Dual-threat Quarterback in the class. With offers from Boston College, Pittsburgh, Temple and Connecticut, after originally commiting to Temple he flipped to Pittsburgh. From High School through Year 4 at Pittsburgh he never crested 62% completion percentage, and in 2021 it jumped to 67.2%.

In 5 seasons at Pittsbrugh, Pickett totaled just 801 rushing yards, 72 shy of his high school total. Not looked at as a dominant rusher, he still finished with 20 scores on the ground in 5 seasons and raced all to a 3rd place finish in the 2021 Heisman Voting. Pickett was also invited to the 2022 Reese's Senior Bowl in Mobile, Al.

Kenny Pickett was selected in the 1st round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Such a fugazi. Everyone talked Malik Willis into being the first one drafted. He should be able to beat out Mitch, and with the talent around him should succeed immediately. Pickens, Claypool, and Johnson become fantasy relevant receivers. If the Steelers rebuild their line in next year’s draft, then the success will continue over the next few years.
