The Pittsburgh Steelers are getting a talented wide receiver as they selected George Pickens with the No. 52 pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. Pickens battled back from a torn ACL suffered in the spring of his final season with the Georgia Bulldogs, and he returned late in the regular season and helped his team win a national championship.
Pickens’ biggest strength is his ball skills as he can make plenty of catches even when needing to adjust his body to make the play. You won’t see a ton of drops from him as a talented pass catcher. Pickens will likely need to become stronger to compete against aggressive NFL cornerbacks who play with tons of physicality. He has a fairly wide range of expectations for what his professional career could be.
