Shutdown Corner Commentary
Thirty-nine years ago, the Steelers passed on Dan Marino. The reason? It was too close to home, they said. The Rooneys still run the show, and they won’t pass on this Pitt QB. There’s an argument to be made over whether Pickett has the upside to be better than Malik Willis down the road. But his college experience, elite competitiveness and solid athleticism and arm talent add up to a very reasonable pairing. Pickett could beat out Mitch Trubisky early on and start for years.
