The official size of Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett is 8 1/2 inches.
To this point, he’s played the position quite well, especially in the last year. Pickett emerged as a Heisman Trophy candidate in his fifth and final collegiate season at the University of Pittsburgh, completing 67.2% of passes for 4,319 yards and a 42-7 touchdown-to-interception ratio. The Panthers ascended accordingly, finishing the season as the 13th-ranked team in the Football Bowl Subdivision.
Pickett’s rise has him projected to be selected in the first round of a draft that isn’t especially strong at quarterback. The notion hasn’t had an impact on Pickett’s confidence.
