Peter King Ranks Steelers' Kenny Pickett Behind Browns' DTR Among NFL AFC North QBs

Count Peter King of Pro Football Talk among those who isn't very high on Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett.

As he wrote in his weekly column, "AFC North QB Depth Chart, as of this morning anyway: Lamar Jackson, Dorian Thompson-Robinson, and, in a tie, Kenny Pickett and Jake Browning. Pick it up, Kenny."

Pickett has earned the doubt. He finished just 15-of-28 for 106 yards, no touchdowns, no interceptions and three sacks taken in a 13-10 loss against the Cleveland Browns.

"[The Browns] have a really good defense. They make a lot of offenses look like that," Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters after the loss.
