BIO: Second-team all-conference choice who passed for 56.6 percent/3,043/15/13 as a senior despite a rib injury. Incredibly productive as a junior when he totaled 59.6 percent/4,458/28/14, becoming the first quarterback in Pac-10 history to throw for more than 4,000 yards in a season, also smashing conference records for offensive yards, pass completions and offensive attempts. Broke into the starting lineup as a freshman and had an immediate impact with 56.1 percent/2,403/10/14. Led his team to five comeback victories in the fourth quarter that season.

POSITIVES: Athletically gifted passer with a high upside for the next level. Sets up with solid footwork, quickly gets rid of the ball and displays NFL-type arm strength. Zips the outs, puts speed on short throws and passes quickly gets to the intended target. Looks off the safety, goes to the safe underneath route or gets outside of tackle and makes the throw on the move. Patient, buys time and takes a hit in order to get the pass off. Does not throw the bad interception.

NEGATIVES: Marginal accuracy outside of 10 yards and does not always throw with an over-the-top motion. Really does not drive the ball downfield.

ANALYSIS: A tough competitor with top leadership qualities, Pickett possesses the physical skills necessary to be a productive starting quarterback in the NFL. Must improve his fundamentals but a solid middle-round choice.
