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.
