The Pittsburgh Steelers passed on Pitt legend Dan Marino almost 40 years ago.
They didn’t have to go anywhere to land Pitt’s newest hometown hero.
Kenny Pickett stuck around until the 20th pick and the Steelers swooped him up.
Pickett weathered “hands” comments all offseason.
Ironically, a Steeler legend remembered for using his own hands made the announcement: Franco “Immaculate Reception” Harris.
Pickett is already a hero in the Steel City.
He’ll get to stay at Heinz Field but he’ll have to produce to follow the footsteps of a Hall-of-famer, Ben Roethlisberger.
