Will Kenny Pickett win Steelers QB battle

Written by Tony Ghaul

Rookie Kenny Pickett has been impressive in both preseason games. He has completed 19 of 22 passes for 171 yards and 3 touchdown passes.

Pickett was the first quarterback selected in this year’s draft and he was deemed to be the most NFL ready QB in the draft. He is definitely proving that he is ready to play at this level and he is putting the heat on Mitchell Trubisky. Of

The Steelers entered training camp with a three headed QB competition consisting of Mitchell Trubisky, Mason Rudolph and Kenny Pickett. Let’s face it the competition is really between Trubisky and Pickett. Rudolph has been there as a backup for a while and the Steelers know that he is not starting QB material.

I believe that Mitchell Trubisky will be named the starting QB for the season opener, but I would not be surprised to see Pickett steal the job from Trubisky if he struggles.
