RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A generally unheralded third-round pick in the 2015 draft, Hicks would begin the season as Philadelphia's fourth inside linebacker but finish the year as the team's best one. Heading into 2016, he's poised to break out. Playing 450 snaps, Hicks finished his rookie year with 50 tackles (43 solo), one sack and two interceptions in eight games, at which point a torn pectoral muscle ended his year. In addition to the easy triple-digit tackle pace Hicks displayed, one has to be encouraged by his extremely high solo tackle percentage. He was medically cleared in April.
The Eaglesí coaching staff seems to like Hicks for his size, athleticism and football acumen. The third-round pick out of Texas will likely make the roster and be worked into the linebacker rotation; but, as we saw with the teamís first-round pick Marcus Smith last season, Hicks will need to earn his playing time.
