Hicks has been a four-year starter at cornerback for a highly efficient Wisconsin defense. This season was his biggest and most productive season for Wisconsin as he accounted for 27 total tackles, 21 solo tackles, and 8 pass breakups.

He finishes his career with 107 total tackles, 85 solo tackles, 16 pass breakups, 2 tackles for loss, and an interception.

Hicks is a player that has seen a tremendous boost of efficiency this season, but he could potentially one more year to boost his NFL Draft stock. Hicks does not rank among the top 42 cornerbacks eligible for the 2022 NFL Draft by
