Who is the Steelers most overrated player?

The folks over at Pro Football Network put together their list of who the most overrated player is on each of the 32 NFL teams. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, they went with wide receiver George Pickens.

Here’s what they had to say about Pickens:

Surprise! Another wide receiver from the 2022 NFL Draft has landed on this list.

It feels like we’ve been waiting an eternity for George Pickens to have a breakout season for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Yet, he’s only heading into his third NFL season.

Following Russell Wilson’s arrival in Pittsburgh, Pickens will be playing with easily the most talented quarterback he’s had throwing to him at the next level. Now, we’ll wait and see if Pickens can finally put it all together on the field and live up to the hype.

Sort of an odd choice given how bad the quarterbacks have been in Pittsburgh since Pickens was drafted (as he mentions). Last season, Pickens ended up finishing 16th in the NFL in receiving yards in 2023 ahead of guys like DK Metcalf, DeAndre Hopkins, Chris Olae and Garrett Wilson. Pickens also led the league in yards per catch.

But despite all this, it did get us thinking about who the most overrated guy is on the Steelers. In today’s poll we offer up some options based on hype, production and contract for you all to consider. Personally, we don’t view any player on the team as truly overrated in the truest sense but if you take salary into consideration, Cam Heyward and Minkah Fitzpatrick both are coming off down seasons and have cap hits over $20 million this season.

Cast your vote and let us know who you consider the Steelers most overrated player.
