Photos: Meet The Girlfriend Of Steelers Rookie QB Kenny Pickett

Kenny Pickett's girlfriend

Just a few months ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers found their new franchise quarterback by drafting former Pitt standout Kenny Pickett with the No. 20 overall pick.

He and veteran quarterback Mitchell Trubisky are in the midst of a quarterback battle, along with veteran Steelers backup Mason Rudolph. While Pickett was seen as the most NFL-ready quarterback in the draft, he's not guaranteed the starting role.

It's been quite the offseason for Pickett, who proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Amy Paternoster. She was college soccer player, who attended Princeton. 

Now she's watching her soon-to-be husband in his first NFL training camp.

"Day 1 in the books!! So excited for my 'little' camper," she said on Instagram.

After Pickett was drafted, Paternoster had a special message for him.

"Words cannot describe how proud I am of you, nor how happy I am to see all of your dreams come true," she said. "There is nobody more deserving of this! I can’t wait to see all of the amazing things you have yet to accomplish. Let’s go home!!!"

Will she get to watch Pickett land the starting job?
