Scouting Report

40 time: 4.52

First/Second Round

Snapshot: A national top-10 recruit with five-star grades out of high school, Pickens was a hit with a 49-catch freshman season in Athens. He started eight games in 2020, including a two-TD game against Missouri and his 12-catch, 175-yard outing against Baylor. He led the team with six TD receptions and finished with 36 grabs for 513 yards. Following a springtime right knee injury in 2021, Pickens underwent surgery and played in only four games with five receptions for 107 yards.

Strengths: He was quality size and speed to create plays downfield with the strength to make contested catches. Pickens has underrated ability to separate and the blend of length and space to convert big-time production at the next level. While Pickens has been battling injuries, he has produced from a young age in the Georgia offense. Has the long-term potential and upside to serve as a high-end No. 2 wide receiver if healthy.

Weaknesses: Undeniable promise but multiple injuries make his health and dependability a conversation for every NFL evaluator. Thin-framed and needs time in a pro strength and conditioning program. Route-running is limited and injuries have impacted his refinement. Not an aid as a downfield blocker. More competitive than tough.

Pro Comp: DeVante Parker, Dolphins - Parker was faster but equally reliant on finesse and length, and started his NFL career slowly because of the adjustment.
