Summary

Hicks was a key player for the Bears when they transitioned to a 3-4 base under Vic Fangio last year. He provides strong 2-way play up front that makes things easier for the linebackers. He also has above-average quickness and pass rush ability for a 3-4 DE as we saw last year when he posted 7 sacks. While lacking in upside, Hicks has a good chance to maintain his level of productivity from a year ago as long as he can stay healthy. (June 5)
