Summary

The former Regina (Canada) product opened a lot of eyes in 2014, starting every game at left defensive end opposite Cameron Jordan, notching 27 tackles and 11 assists. A bully against offensive linemen, Hicks uses his raw power to control blockers at the point of attack and essentially ragdoll them to make the play. He may be classified as a DT in some leagues, but generally he will be called a DE. Hicks' growing talent is well worth keeping an eye on; he is a viable DL3 in a pinch. (April 27)
