PITTSBURGH (AP) A year ago, Kenny Pickett found himself buried at third on the Pittsburgh depth chart during spring drills, as tends to happen to freshmen who've been on campus all of a few weeks.
Not that Pickett ever thought of himself as a third-stringer. That's simply not his way.
"I acted like I was No.1 when I got here," Pickett said with a laugh on Saturday after the Panthers completed spring practice with their annual Blue/Gold scrimmage. "No one else thought it, but I thought I was No. 1 so when it happens it's just another day for me."
