Hicks is a unique talent not only because of his strength and speed, but because of his versatility. He has the flexibility to play either five-technique or three-technique on the defensive line depending on his 6’4”, 250-lb. frame continues to grow. As is often the case with defensive lineman making the leap from high school to college, his technique as a pass rusher needs work. Hicks has generally been able to bully his way past offensive lineman, often by either overpowering interior lineman or beating less athletic tackles off the edge. He is a frequent presence in offensive backfields and never gives up on a play.
