With the signing of Hicks, the Eagles have finished deals with all six of their draftees.
Hicks will be in a crowded inside linebacker position with Mychal Kendricks, DeMeco Ryans and Kiko Alonso all on the roster, it will be interesting to see if someone gets traded or what kind of role the Eagles have in store for Hicks.
He could be added for depth with both Ryans/Alonso are coming off major injuries, scouts look at him as a guy who could start out on special teams, become a nickel 'backer and could grow into a three-down NFL linebacker.
