Former Pittsburgh Panthers standout Kenny Pickett will have an opportunity to prove himself in front of NFL teams.
His small hands have been subject to criticism because they argue that he might have a hard time gripping the football.
However, his Pro Day will settle that debate and he must put up a great performance.
After all, there should be no pressure to do well because he will be throwing at his home turf.
That said, NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala revealed the teams that will attend Pickett’s session.
Nine QB coaches have RSVPed to the @Pitt_FB Pro Day, where @MoveTheSticks’ top QB Kenny Pickett will be throwing: #Falcons, #Panthers, #Lions, #Saints, #Giants, #Eagles, #Seahawks, #Titans, #Commanders.

That group is a mix of teams desperate for a starter and squads looking to solidify their quarterback depth chart.
Of the nine teams mentioned, the Atlanta Falcons and the Carolina Panthers might have the biggest need after losing the Deshaun Watson sweepstakes.
Finally, the Tennessee Titans would like to steady the backup spot behind Ryan Tannehill, for now.
How About The Steelers?
Surprisingly, the Pittsburgh Steelers did not signify their intention of joining Pickett’s Pro Day even if they’re already in the vicinity.
After all, it’s still worth a look without spending much on travel costs.
Are the Steelers satisfied with Mitchell Trubisky?
Or will head coach Mike Tomlin just barge in and surprise everyone?
