Pickar is one of the best defensive catchers in college baseball. He has a plus arm that he used to throw out 41 percent of basestealers entering the NCAA playoffs. He also has solid receiving skills and does a nice job of running a pitching staff. The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder is strong and durable, as he started all 60 games for Oral Roberts during the regular season and Summit League tournament. Pickar's bat relegates his ceiling to that of a backup catcher in the major leagues, however. He has a long swing and rarely hits the ball with much authority, though his .303/.420/.378 average this year were the best of his college career.
