George Pickens impresses with hurdle at Pittsburgh Steelers camp, shocks Najee Harris
George Pickens is off to a fast start with the Pittsburgh Steelers in training camp, and he delivered his latest highlight on Friday with an impressive hurdle.
Pickens got a wow from the crowd and running back Najee Harris, who raised his eyebrows to applaud the effort. Pickens was drafted with the No. 52 overall pick in the NFL Draft, as the Steelers took him in the second round at the Las Vegas event.
Pickens at Georgia during his 3 seasons made 90 receptions for 1,347 yards with 14 touchdowns in 26 games. He suffered an ACL injury, and was also remembered for getting in a fight during a game against Georgia Tech.

With this strong training camp, Pickens appears to have done his part to shake up a depth chart that starts the season with Chase Claypool, Anthony Miller and Diontae Johnson. Pickens has at least made it intriguing to check out how his rookie season unfolds.
