Kenny Pickett News

  • Kenny Pickett third-string · Jun 28, 2022

    Steelers rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett worked with the third-team offense exclusively

    This comes as no surprise and all expectations have been that Pickett wouldn't be rushed under-center with both Mason Rudolph and newcomer Mitchell Trubisky as more experienced options. Trubisky is fully expected to be the starter though things could get more interesting as we near mid-season if the team has fallen from playoff contention. Pickett, 2022's 20th-overall selection and first quarterback off the board, has been dogged by questions about his hand size which may have contributed to 38 collegiate fumbles. He's listed as DLF's QB23 and rookie QB1 while coming off the board sometimes as late as the third round of dynasty rookie drafts.

  • Kenny Pickett drafted by Pittsburgh · Apr 29, 2022

    The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted University of Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett with the 20th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

    The Steelers took the first quarterback off the board with the 20th selection and it ended up being hometown kid Kenny Pickett. With Big Ben riding off to the sunset, the Steelers were in line for a long-term solution at the position. You have to figure Mitchell Trubisky will be the starter and the Steelers will likely bring Pickett along slowly as long as Trubisky doesn't faceplant. Pickett is a solid prospect even if he's not considered elite. He lands in a great spot with a franchise committed to winning with a history of decent player development. His floor was raised with this landing spot even though Malik Willis will likely still be taken ahead of him in both 1QB and 2QB formats.

  • Kenny Pickett lacks physical traits · Apr 22, 2022

    In a piece on NFL.com quoting scouts, execs and coaches, concerns about rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett were wide ranging

    From hand size to arm strength to upside, there seems to be more risk than upside on Pickett though some jumped to his defense as a stable, capable and poised rookie who could perform well with a good team around him. There's the rub as need at the position during the NFL Draft is top of mind in 2022 which should lead to less-than-ideal prospects being selected earlier than would-be under other circumstances. Pickett, DLF's QB4, he'll be a first-round selection but team selection will be crucial to his long-term value. The 2022 class of quarterbacks, outside of Malik Willis, are falling in superflex rankings, the second quarterback coming off the board at/near 1.09 while, in non-superflex formats, it's possible the second quarterback selected won't appear until the third round.

  • Kenny Pickett mocked to Saints · Mar 22, 2022

    In Mel Kiper's most recent mock draft, quarterback Kenny Pickett is mocked to the Saints with the 18th-overall selection

    The first quarterback selected at 18th overall tells you all you need to know about how this quarterback class is perceived. Pickett was dogged by reports of his small hands but handle the issue with poise and class during the NFL Combine. The team recently signed Jameis WInston which would give Pickett time to adjust to the NFL game without the pressure of starting out of the gate in 2022. Pickett is found as a wide-range rookie QB3 on DLF's rookie rankings.

  • Kenny Pickett first off the board · Mar 10, 2022

    In Todd McShay's most recent NFL Mock Draft, Kenny Pickett was the first quarterback off the board to the Saints at 18th overall.

    All the talk during the Combine was about Pickett's small (8.5") hands but he handled the criticism well and performed admirably during workouts. The Saints are still flirting with Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill remains under contract so Pickett figures to ride the pine for at least one season, or until the team is out of playoff contention. He's found as DLF's QB3 and R28 (overall) but the R9 in superflex rankings.

  • Kenny Pickett's hand measures 8.5" · Mar 3, 2022

    Kenny Pickett's hand measured in at 8.5" at the NFL Scouting Combine.

    For the record, that would be smaller than any current quarterback's hand size in the league. My own hands are also smaller than nine inches and I was able to sling the pigskin in my backyard just fine this morning. While this metric will be highly scrutinized and Twitter will have a field day with it, the fact is Pickett played at Pittsburgh and the adverse weather didn't hinder his performance. The bigger question with Pickett is going to be the fact he was a one-year wonder and there are concerns about how his game will translate to the NFL level. In the end, this is unlikely to affect Pickett's ultimate draft stock as he's expected to be taken in round one of the NFL Draft.

  • Kenny Pickett mocked to Washington · Feb 25, 2022

    USA Today's most recent mock draft has the Commanders selecting Kenny Pickett.

    Pickett enjoyed a huge breakout season at Pittsburgh with 4,319 passing yards, 42 touchdowns and seven interceptions. The challenge is the fact his other four seasons featured just 39 total touchdown passes, making him quite the one year wonder. He also played just one ranked team last season, raising questions about just how high his ceiling really is. Still, he's a solid option for a team looking for a traditional drop back passer who has been praised for his solid decision making. His landing spot will be a huge key as to just what kind of draft capital will be needed to be used on him. Washington would be a good, just not great fit.

    comment While it would be the move I would have made, Kenny Pickett was the first quarterback off the board and the only player at the position selected prior to Round 3. Pickett enters a fairly cozy situation with a stable coaching staff and excellent set of weapons. I question the upside, but there should be a tidy floor.
