5 things Steelers fans need to know about new draft choice, Kenny Pickett
Kenny Pickett’s work ethic and attention to detail helped him flash greatness early
If you read up on what Pitt’s coaches would say about Pickett the number one thing they always come back to is an incredible work ethic and commitment to being better. That kind of commitment led to Pickett dropping baseball in his junior year of high school.
Pickett would go on to enroll at Pitt University early in January of 2017. Not even a year later Pickett would go on to lead the Panthers to a major upset as an unranked program over the #2 program in the nation at the time Miami.
Pickett showed an incredible amount of poise in his first year as a college athlete.

Pickett got better every year in college demonstrating a strong and steady progression. 2021 was the year where everything finally showed.
