The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Friday that they’ve signed second-round WR George Pickens to a four-year contract.
This is the first player from the Steelers’ 2022 class to sign their rookie deal:
Pickens, 21, was a preseason All-America second-team pick selection by Walter Camp and was second-team preseason All-SEC. The Steelers used the No. 52 overall pick on him in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Lance Zierlein compares him to Lions WR Josh Reynolds.
He’s projected to sign a four-year $6,752,177 contract that includes a $2,090,674 signing bonus.
During his three-year college career, Pickens appeared in 26 games and recorded 90 receptions for 1,347 yards ( 15.0 YPC) and 14 touchdowns.
