Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett's hand size has dominated the talk surrounding him as he prepares for the NFL Draft. It seems ridiculous, but he's taking the attention seriously and he's been doing exercises and stretches to increase his hand size.
And all the hard work is finally paying off. Earlier this week, at his Pro Day, Pickett's hand size increased to 8 5/8 from 8 1/2 inches at the NFL scouting combine. Big news if you're into that kind of thing.
All of the hand drama hasn't been lost on Pickett's fiancee Amy Paternoster. She showed his small hands some love during the combine and now she's making fun of them.
I can't see any team passing on Pickett strictly because of his hand size. But I can see several teams seeing this picture of his fiancee bullying him right to his face, in front of others, and passing on him.
How is he going to gain the respect of a locker room when the woman he loves doesn't even respect him?
