Kenny Pickett is almost certainly the Pittsburgh Steelers' future quarterback.

The question now is how long it will take him to replace incumbent starter Mitchell Trubisky.

The Steelers plan to take Patrick Mahomes' approach with their first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Pickett is the team's future, and since being selected 20th overall, he's performed even better than Pittsburgh anticipated.

Mitchell Trubisky was named one of the Steelers' captains and has taken on a visible leadership role for the team.

Mike Tomlin has previously stated his opposition to letting Mitch do the heavy lifting.

According to current projections, Kenny Pickett could miss the majority of the year, if not the entire year, so it appears to be more than just lip service.

 If Trubisky has a shaky start this season, the call for Kenny Pickett to get his chances early will only grow louder. 

But for now, Trubusky have to wait his turn and learn what it takes to be a starting quarterback from the inside.
