Bio: 
One-year starter who missed the entire 2017 season due to a preseason torn ACL. Started seven games and made 60 tackles (seven for loss) with 1.5 sacks and two forced fumbles as a junior. Made four starts and posted 60 tackles (eight for loss), five sacks and four pass breakups in 2015.
Pos: 
Once-highly rated linebacker prospect who missed all of last season with a knee injury. Explosive, possesses next-level size and speed and sells out to make plays. Quick laterally, displays good change of direction and shows ability in pursuit. Easily runs with tight ends and running backs in coverage. Forceful on the blitz.
Neg: 
Struggles taking on and shedding blocks. Does not time well in the 40, although he plays faster. Coming off a serious knee injury.
Analysis: 
Scouts graded Cichy as a potential second-day pick entering the season, though that has changed since the knee injury he suffered last August. Cichy has the size and skill to develop into a starter on the inside of a 3-4 alignment if he regains his health.
