It seems that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky isn’t fazed by the Steelers choice to draft former Pitt star Kenny Pickett in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft.

Trubisky spoke to the media on Wednesday and made it clear he is confident and comfortable in the offense and is preparing to be the starter this season.

The road to the Steelers was interesting for Trubisky. After being selected No. 2 overall in the 2017 NFL draft by the Chicago Bears, things didn’t go according to plan. Rather than saving the Bears, Trubisky found himself a backup in Buffalo last season, hoping to get another shot as a starter.

This season is a perfect opportunity for Trubisky to turn things around. The Steelers offense fits his skills perfectly and the Pittsburgh offensive skill players are among the best in the AFC.

It’s hard to imagine where Trubisky doesn’t give the Steelers the best chance to win, at least early in the season. Pickett might be the future but don’t be shocked if the Steelers have themselves something of a problem when Trubisky plays much better than anticipated and doesn’t just give up his starting spot.
