"I know a lot of people are saying 'oh, well, he had to knock some rust off, he only had seven snaps, maybe he's on a pitch count;' from what I'm hearing about in practice, this guys is tearing it up in practice. He's had some great pitches and catching with Stetson Bennett."

"The guy is making plays in practice. He's ready to go out there and do what George Pickens does. He's confident in his body."

Nabulsi said Pickens playing in the game against Georgia Tech was crucial to get his game feet back under him.

So, what can we expect from Pickens on Saturday?

"He'd be more than just a decoy," Nabulsi continued. "But, if he's just a decoy, then that means you can't double up Brock Bowers."
