At some point this last offseason, I pointed out that Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett was ninth amongst returning Power Five quarterbacks in passing yards from 2019.
That figure, of course, did not jive with the common perception in Pittsburgh that Pickett and Pitt’s offense underperformed a season ago.
And it does require further context, with Pickett falling well short of his peers when it came to touchdowns passes despite his prodigious yardage total.
But it also showed the immense growth Pickett made in his first season under offensive coordinator Mark Whipple after running what was basically a run-only offense in 2018.
So through three games, how has Pickett stacked up to the competition and last year’s pace?
