The Pittsburgh Steelers invested heavily in their future in the 2022 NFL draft when they selected both Kenny Pickett and George Pickens.

After a slow start to the season, Pickett and Pickens have seemed to link on the field early and often. Since Pickett took over as the Steelers starter in Week 4, he has targeted Pickens 41 teams. This has led to 388 receiving yards and two touchdowns for the rookie receiver.

With the recent success of Pickens, he has carved out a strong role in the offense for himself. He has attributed this to the connection that he has formed with Pickett on the field.
