Kenny Pickett knew what was coming.

Pickett, one of the top quarterback prospects in this year's NFL draft, acknowledged questions about his hand size one day after electing to not have his throwing hand measured as part of the Senior Bowl weigh-in.

The former University of Pittsburgh quarterback said he will improve his hand mobility through stretches ahead of this month's NFL scouting combine, where he will get an official measurement. He also cited his experience playing in the "tough weather" of Pittsburgh as proof that his hand size won't be an issue at the next level.

"I think that's like the No. 1 thing for quarterbacks in the draft process every year is hand size," Pickett said Tuesday. "The good news is that I play in Pittsburgh. Anyone that's been to Pittsburgh knows it's not the nicest place to play in October, November."
