Kenny Pickett’s Senior Bowl Measurements Released, Including Lack of Hand Size

Published

on

Quarterback measurements are often the talk of Senior Bowl week and with Kenny Pickett’s infamous “small hands” set to finally come to light, well, we’ll have to wait just a bit longer.

Pickett measured in at 6-foot-3, 217 pounds (which is an excellent measurement for a quarterback some thought was measured taller while at Pitt) and his arm length was recorded at 30 5/8 inches and his wingspan measured 72 6/8 inches. His hand size was not measured.

While fellow top draft prospects like Malik Willis, Sam Howell and others had their hand sizes measured, Pickett’s notable absence was actually explained. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that Pickett didn’t have his hands measured in Mobile because his thumb points in a different direction because of his double jointedness.

Pelissero further reported that Pickett will continue to exercise his hand in order to get an accurate measurement at the NFL Combine in March.

In terms of Pickett’s measurables compared to his fellow draft prospects, he measured in at 6-foot-3, which is tied with Cincinnati’s Desmond Ridder and Nevada’s Carson Strong as the tallest in Mobile. His arm length and wingspan are the shortest among the six quarterbacks in attendance.

While measurements likely won’t especially help or hinder Pickett’s draft stock all that much, his hand size will continue to be a discussion point leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft in April.

I think KP has shown enough skill that his “hand size” won’t matter. The guy is a competitor and a winner.

Now, let’s see those Wonderlic scores! I bet he tops Corral.

Is this really worth printing, who cares the kid can flat out play. As a fan, I hope he drops to the Steelers, as a man, take this kid as the 1st QB he earned it.
