TL;DR news on Kenny Pickett at February 19, 2023
"The reason I didn't measure at the Senior Bowl was just to have those extra couple weeks, just kind of a commonsense thing, to have more time working the exercises," Pickett told reporters Wednesday. Ridder didn't have the same "Wow" moments with his arm that Willis did, and he wasn't as accurate in making all the throws the way Pickett was. Still, Pickett might see his draft stock drop based on that measurement. Given his college production, it would be tough to see Pickett drop significantly because his hands are small compared to most quarterbacks. In hindsight, Pickett looks smart for avoiding an injury like the one Corral suffered, which kept him from playing in the Senior Bowl and prohibited him from throwing Thursday at the NFL Combine. "Whatever it measures, it measures," Pickett said, per NFL.com's Nick Shook. "Please keep me in your thoughts." Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett finds himself in a similar situation this year. And linebackers Alexander Johnson, Josey Jewell and Kenny Young are all primed for free agency.
