As revealed by foxfooty.com.au, Pickett, who was selected in the mid-season draft, will be named in the 22.
Richmond on Thursday afternoon confirmed the inclusion of Pickett, who was jailed as a teenager for burglary.

The 27-year-old was best afield in last weekend’s VFL grand final and has been close to senior selection for some weeks.
His selection is another chapter in a remarkable story. He won two best and fairest awards at South Fremantle and has been preferred to Jack Ross for the club’s second decider in three years.
He will replace Jack Graham, who has already been ruled out with a dislocated shoulder.
Nathan Broad passed his concussion test earlier in the week and is expected to play.
Pickett spent two years in prison in his late teens and has become a hugely popular figure at Punt Road this year.
