Biography: Three-year starter and multiple All-Conference selection. Senior totals included 64/5/3 after 64 tackles and four interceptions during his junior campaign.
Positives: Opportunistic defensive back with solid size. Quick up the field defending the run, fast to the sidelines, and possesses a fluid change of direction. Shows good hands for the interception, and is constantly around the ball.
Negatives: Easily taken from the action by blocks. Struggles battling opponents to defend the throw. Does not always take proper angles to the action.
Analysis: Hicks has flown under the radar screen the past three seasons yet is a serviceable player who could end up on a roster as a ninth defensive back.
