Weakness:


Pickett is the type of player who is constantly looking to extend plays and create opportunities when there are seemingly none. In doing so, he has a tendency to hold on to the ball too long, resulting in taking necessary sacks. When running with the football, Pickett needs to get into the habit of sliding, and avoid putting himself at risk of taking big hits. In the cases where he has a clean pocket or a secure pressure, Pickett has the tendency to leave, which can break the structure of the offense. In these cases, Pickett needs to improve his poise and stay within the structure.
