Hicks key for Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Call me crazy, but I'm expecting a JJ Watt kinda breakout season for this guy. Maybe not to that degree, but I feel like Hicks could turn into someone that strikes fear into opposing offenses....

The physical talent is undoubtly there, lets just see if the mind is too.

Hicks is a first rounder that we got in the third. Jimmy Graham, Armstead and JJ are other third rounders that have first round potential.

Watts is a freak not only physically, but off the scale in football IQ too. If Hicks at 6'5", 325lbs, and as fast as he is can come in this year with half the football brains Watts has, then you are going to be spot on with your expectations.

See. Less is better!

Re: Hicks key for Saints

I just want them to put pressure on the QB and cause turnovers. Oh I want Hicks, Jordan are who ever on the D to get Matt Ryan and Cam Newton and hit them everytime they go back and throw the damn ball. We have the players on the defense that are athletic enough to get at the QB and vets like Vilma and Lothon that are smart enough to have guys in the right spot and to play head games with the QB on the other team. I want teams to fear use. I hope Rob Ryan can turn the defense around like Wade Phillips did with the Texans because we have better player we just need someone to coach them.

Re: Hicks key for Saints

Consistent pressure is all we need, will force QB's to make mistakes

Hopefully Hicks and Jordan can blow up the pocket, forcing matt ryan or cam newton to roll out and then BAM.....martez wilson with a full head of steam drives them into the turf

Then he'd go from Matty Brown-Spot to just Matty Spot.
