Xavier Hicks

School: Washington State
Position: S
Bio: Two-year starter who totaled 81/3/4 as a senior after 78 tackles as a junior.
Positive: Hard-charging, run-defending safety who makes plays sideline to sideline. Breaks down well working his hands to protect himself, fast up the field, and wraps up tackling. Remains disciplined in coverage assignments.
Negative: Marginal playing speed and does not show the ability to quickly close to the action. Does not sell out on the blitz. Marginally instinctive.
Analysis: Hicks is a nice-sized safety with limited cover skills and best playing downhill or up the box. Offers potential as a conventional strong safety if he makes his mark on special teams this summer.
