How to use pick off in a sentence?

  1. Donald Trump:

    Now they're trying to pick off those delegates one by one, that's not the way democracy is supposed to work. They offer them trips, they offer them all sorts of things and you're allowed to do that. You can buy all these votes.

  2. Stephanie Drumheller:

    Allosaurus might not have been as big as T. rex, but it was no slouch as an apex predator, it was able to hyper-extend its jaw for a super-wide gape. It was a hatchet feeder like a hawk, meaning it would chop into prey with its head. It had long arms with grasping claws and a strong bite force. Track sites suggest it might have been a long-distance hunter that would follow herds for miles to pick off prey.

  3. Rory McIlroy:
