Lady Luck appears to be smiling on the side of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Months after Ben Roethlisberger wrapped up an 18-year-career, the Steelers employ a former Pro Bowl quarterback and the first quarterback selected in the 2022 NFL Draft. 

Pittsburgh's good fortune didn't appear to be lost on Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert. The Steelers coach and general manager did not hide their excitement upon selecting former Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett with the 20th overall pick. It marked the first time this century that a draft had lasted that long before a quarterback had been picked. 

"Honestly," Colbert told the media Thursday night, "I never thought he would make it to us." 

Nearly as surprising as Pickett being available that late in the draft was how quickly the team came to terms with Mitchell Trubisky, who agreed to terms on a multiyear deal mere hours into into the league's legal tampering period. Along with Pickett and Trubisky, the Steelers quarterback room also includes Mason Rudolph, who has five years and 10 starts worth of experience with the Steelers. All three players will compete to be the Steelers' starting quarterback coming out of training camp.
