Biography: Junior college transfer was a full-time starter the past two years.
Positives: Strong run blocker who attacks assignments and plays with a nasty attitude. Explosive at the point, jolts opponents with good punch and easily controls them once engaged in a block. Turns defenders off the line, opening holes for the running game. Works well with linemates and is always looking for someone to hit. Plays with good quickness.
Negatives: Stiff and struggles to adjust. Haphazard in his movements and lacks overall blocking balance. Poor footwork in space.
Analysis: Hicks is a strong yet small area blocker with potential to be a backup in a power running game or ball control offense.
