4-7 Round Day 3

Comparison

Faion Hicks Denver Broncos

A lunchpail type of cornerback that is physical enough to play in the boundary, but also fluid enough to get it done on the field side. Made a name for himself as a sophomore picking off three passes and defending plenty more while competing in the Peach State’s AAA classification. Aggressive with his hands and will put his hip right on a wide receiver. Does a nice job of reading and reacting to what’s going on in front of him. Fights off blocks like a veteran and understands how to drop a ball carrier in the open field with sound tackling. Not the biggest of corners as he measured in at roughly 5-foot-11, 160 pounds the spring before his junior year, but should continue to keep filling out once lifting and eating in college. Also likely to get more explosive and improve long speed, although it should be noted that he has reportedly gone 4.4 in the 40-yard dash multiple times. Has some of the tools required to make an impact at the Power 5 level if he keeps progressing. Violent play style suggests that he could excel as an inside corner. Might also have a future at safety if that’s a quicker route to playing time.

Athletic Background
