The 2022 NFL Draft has come and gone and we now have the landing spots for all of the draft-eligible college football players. The Pittsburgh Steelers had their pick of a franchise quarterback and they selected Kenny Pickett with the 20th overall pick in the draft. Pickett played his college ball at the University of Pittsburgh which shares a practice facility with the Steelers so they had plenty of time to scout him.

Fantasy football breakdown

Pickett’s fantasy value is a little cloudy at the moment. The Steelers brought in Trubisky on a two-year deal to provide the flexibility for their first-round draft pick. When the board fell the way it did, they jumped at the chance to get Pickett. He is 24 years old which is a long-term concern for fantasy football. In his rookie year, he will have to beat out Trubisky in camp and show that he is as pro-ready as he was said to be. If he can become the starter, Pickett will have ample opportunity for a solid rookie fantasy season with good weapons around him.
