One of the most incredible selection debuts in Richmond history - Pickett was named in Richmond's 2019 Grand Final team against GWS. He became the first player to debut in a Grand Final since Keith Batchelor (Collingwood) in 1952, and with the Tigers victory joined Bill James (1920) as the only Tiger player to ever debut in a premiership match.
A week earlier, he had won the Norm Goss Memorial Medal for best on ground in Richmond's Reserves premiership win.
On Grand Final day against GWS, he kicked a goal (which was passed to him by Dustin Martin) and performed exceptionally well including a memorable blind turn in the middle of the ground. He finished in third place in the Norm Smith Medal voting.
As a result of playing in a premiership, Pickett automatically became a life member of the club.
