Comparison

Jordan Hicks Arizona Cardinals

Has a streamlined, athletic build without any bad weight. Should gain a good bit of mass once in a college strength program. Tests as a strong athlete with exceptional short area quickness.Has some acrobatic abilities as he can turn standing flips with ease. Comes from one of the nation’s top talent producing high school programs. Moved to defensive end as a senior, though he projects as an off-ball linebacker at the next level. Highly productive high school player who has proven to be unblockable off the edge. Uses his quickness and athleticism to beat offensive linemen of the snap and can close and finish plays in pursuit. Showed in camps over the summer that he can effectively play in space. Can cover running backs and tight ends as well as most linebackers in the 2020 cycle. Will need to readjust to playing linebacker once he gets to the next level. Projects as a multi-year starter at the Power Five level with the upside of developing into an early to mid-round draft pick.
