Pittsburgh Steelers rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett says he’s more comfortable.
Pickett said he noticed a difference between his first week in training camp and now firmly into his second. Whether it’s for comfort or getting used to the speed of the NFL game, these are positive signs of the Steelers’ first-round pick. Consider that Pittsburgh is more of a defensively-oriented team for now, and it’s easy for Steelers fans to get excited about his remarks.
The goal is for Pickett to eventually pass Mitch Trubisky to start playing in his rookie season.
Kenny Pickett notices big changes for him during Pittsburgh Steelers camp
let’s be real Pittsburgh didn’t design Pickett to satisfy a feel-good story about a hometown hero. The hope is that he can be the face of the franchise for the next decade. While he may not be as high as Big Ben or even Terry Bradshaw before him, the reason he was the first quarterback picked last spring is simple: He’s the most ready-to-play quarterback to come out of this year’s crop .
If Pickett becomes a more athletic version of Matt Ryan, then the Steelers themselves have a potential Pro Bowl quarterback capable of winning multiple playoff games. From there it’s all about matchups and shining in winning time. However, the longer Pickett holds a clipboard, the more worried Steelers fans should be about their first-round pick. Trubisky isn’t the long-term type.
Though his image improved after a season as Josh Allen’s backup at Buffalo, no one wanted to touch Trubisky with a 10-foot pole after his Chicago run ended, which was about as far as he got the football exactly could throw. While those things take time, Pickett needs to understand that the NFL game is only going to get faster from here. Just wait until toe meets leather…
Feeling more comfortable is one thing, but succeeding in the midst of discomfort is what football is all about.
