Pickett Gets 4.73 40 Time; Corral, Howell, Willis Don’t Run



Kenny Pickett

INDIANAPOLIS — Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett got a 40-yard dash time and performed the vertical and broad jumps as part of his on-field testing at the 2022 NFL Combine on Thursday.

Pickett ran a 4.73-second 40-yard dash, had a 33.5-inch vertical and a 10-foot-1 broad jump. Those were the only on-field testing drills Pickett participated in, as he declined to run the three-cone drill, short and long shuttle. Pickett also did not perform the bench press.

Of the quarterbacks that ran on Thursday, only Cincinnati’s Desmond Ridder and Brown’s EJ Perry were faster than Pickett in the 40-yard dash. Those two also bested him in the vertical (Ridder 36 inches, Perry 34.5) and the broad jump (Ridder 10-foot-7, Perry 10-foot-3).

Pickett did better than Notre Dame’s Jack Coan, Kansas State’s Skylar Howard, Western Michigan’s Kaleb Eleby and Western Kentucky’s Bailey Zappe in all three drills. Liberty’s Malik Willis, North Carolina’s Sam Howell and Ole Miss’ Matt Corral declined to participate in the drill, instead waiting for their on-campus senior days. Corral is still recovering from the injury he suffered in the Rebels’ bowl game.

Earlier in the day, Pickett underwent official measurements, coming in at 6-foot-3, 217 points, 30 5/18-inch wingspan and 8 1/2-inch hands.
