RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

In only his second year in the league out of tiny Regina College in Canada, Hicks managed 3.5 sacks in his final seven regular season games in 2013 and finished the year with 4.5 sacks and 56 tackles. Almost as importantly as Hicks' marked improvement from a rookie season in which his presence was hardly felt is that the Saints list Hicks as a defensive tackle, despite often lining up as a defensive end in the team's 3-4 defense. If Hicks can continue to build on his sack total in 2014, his value projects to be significantly higher in position-specific IDP leagues given the dearth of quality pass rushers at the defensive tackle position.

2013

Hicks is expected to start at defensive end in the Saints' new 3-4 defense. Hicks was tentatively slated to start at nose tackle, but with the Saints drafting massive DT John Jenkins, Hicks moved to defensive end. While Hicks will still likely see playing time at all three defensive line positions, he holds slightly more value as an end, as it should provide an increased opportunity to rack up a few more sacks.

2012

Hicks was drafted in the third round out of the tiny University of Regina in Canada. Given the weaker competition he faced during his college career, he may have some difficulty contributing right away at the NFL level. At this point in his career, Hicks is expected to back up both Sedrick Ellis and Broderick Bunkley in the defensive tackle rotation.
