WATCH: George Pickens refuses to quit on tipped ball in practice
Current Pittsburgh Steeler Chase Claypool said Saturday that he believes 2nd round selection George Pickens has what it takes to be the top rookie receiver in the NFL.
He’s making quite the impression early on for the Steelers in preseason camp, via Jack Hilgrove of WTOV.

It would be pretty easy for the former National Champion to give up on that ball. Pickens was the 9th highest drafted receiver in the 2022 NFL Draft and the No. 52 overall pick. He has a chance to immediately contribute behind Claypool and Diontae Johnson this upcoming season.
