Bruce Pickens (born May 9, 1968) is a former professional American football player who played cornerback for four seasons for the Atlanta Falcons, Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs, and Oakland Raiders.

A New York Times pre-draft assessment of the 5-10, 192 lb. cornerback that ran a 4.48: "A junior-college transfer who hasn't been exposed to top passing offenses and is somewhat raw in overall development but has the best physical skill of the DBs this year. Very athletic."[1]
