"We're about to make you a Pittsburgh Steeler, brother."
Pitt's former standout quarterback Kenny Pickett is now officially a Pittsburgh Steeler, and it feels like we won. I didn't go to Pitt, but I have a lot of friends who did and we are all thrilled about the Steelers' new draft pick. On Thursday night, the Steelers drafted Pickett as Ben Roethlisberger's apparent successor. According to ESPN, he was the only quarterback chosen in the first round.
You can watch the iconic moment when Mike Tomlin told Kenny that he was going to be a Steeler here:
Welcome home, Kenny!
