Following his stellar senior season at Pitt, it was hard for anyone to come up with a negative to quarterback Kenny Pickett’s game or his future in the NFL.
His accuracy and leadership were never questioned but Pickett was able to show NFL executives and his critics that he was more that he had the arm strength to get the ball deep down the field with touch and accuracy.
However, a potential issue arose prior to the Senior Bowl, which became the talk of the NFL Draft.
Pickett’s hands are reportedly very small, measuring well under nine inches according to reports. His right thumb is doubled-jointed, as well, which adds an entirely different wrinkle to the conversation. However, at large, the more important thing to take into account is that Pickett did not get his hands measured at the Senior Bowl. He plans to do that at the NFL Combine this week.
This morning on “Get Up”, host Mike Greenberg brought that topic up with ESPN’s Draft Guru Mel Kiper and asked if that’s an issue to him.
