BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Senior-year totals included 50/3/6 after career-high numbers of 73/3/3 as a junior when he also tallied seven sacks and 11 tackles for a loss.
POSITIVES: Hard-working, in-the-box safety with good instincts. Breaks down well, quickly diagnoses the action, and hustles around the field to make plays. Contributes on special teams and plays assignment football.
NEGATIVES: Marginally athletic, does not display good lateral range, and struggles in coverage.
ANALYSIS: A productive defender at West Virginia the past three years, Wicks projects to strong safety at the next level, yet he must make his living on special teams.
