Akiem Hicks

School: Regina
Position: DT
Bio: Former LSU recruit who played two seasons for Sacramento City College before transferring to Regina. Canada West All-Star the past two seasons, totaling 35 tackles, 8 tackles for loss, and 6.5 sacks last season in eight games after he had 20/1.5/4 the prior year.
Positive: Athletic and explosive defensive lineman with potential at a variety of positions. Quick off the snap, effectively uses his hands and displays good movement skills. Remains disciplined with assignments, shows solid instincts and chases the action hard. Strong with the ability to break through blocks or hold his ground. Works his hands throughout the action, moves well about the field and fluid if asked to twist or stunt. Plays with good balance, gets a lot of momentum going and works to finish the play.
Negative: Effective when he plays with good pad level yet often gets tall and makes himself an easy target. Shows stiffness in his game and struggles redirecting to ball carriers.
Analysis: Hicks is a solid defensive line prospect who can be used as a three technique tackle or possibly a two-gap end. He offers a good amount of upside and is a solid developmental prospect who should only get better in time.
