Pittsburgh Steelers Another star may have been detected at wide receiver George Pickens.

He has dominated training camp and preseason for the six-time Super Bowl champion since being selected in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

It is a complete reversal from his junior season in Georgia, in which he missed all but four games due to an ACL injury.

But he proved that he performed during the big moments with a 52-yard reception during the national championship game against Alabama.

Now, he is also receiving praise from teammates like fellow Wideout deonte johnson,

Johnson said, “He’s a freak, that’s what he is. It’s a special talent, you know. He can’t teach what he does. I’ll just keep looking at him and be like, Man, I’m amazed.”

He has the physical attributes to dominate as he is 6 foot-3 and weighs 200 pounds.

Therefore, he can easily overpower the defensive backs and find his way through the holes of the defense.

If he continues to do so during the regular season, the rest of the league is doomed.

With him, Johnson, and with a receiving trio it would be hard to stop Chase Claypool,

Pickens’ amazing game against Seattle

The Steelers faced the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1 of the 2022 NFL Preseason, and the Pickens made the highlight reel.

He made a touchdown grab at the corner of the end zone to beat coverage from cornerback Kobe Bryant.

Pickens finished the game as the Steelers’ second-best receiver, with three catches from five goals for 43 yards and one touchdown.

Such a performance will only boost his confidence as he prepares for his rookie NFL season.
