Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned Second Team All-Pac-12 honors as both a sophomore and a junior. Led Arizona State with 13 tackles for loss and added 42 tackles, six sacks and one forced fumble in 2017. Posted 39 tackles (11 for loss), 2.5 sacks, one forced fumble and three pass breakups in 2016. Tied for the team lead with two forced fumbles as a true freshman and recorded 21 tackles (7.5 for loss) and four sacks.
Pos: 
Explosive pass rusher who may struggle to find a position at the next level. Fires off the snap with an explosive first step, easily changes direction and moves fluidly down the line of scrimmage in pursuit of plays. Attracts double-team blocks, plays with proper lean and keeps his feet moving. Holds his ground and rarely gets knocked off his feet. Gives effort against the run, wedges through blocks to make plays behind the line of scrimmage and plays with good explosion.
Neg: 
Lacks strength. Controlled at the point of attack by tight ends. More of a first-step lineman. Tested poorly at the combine.
Analysis: 
Wicker was a terrific college lineman, and his ability to make plays behind the line of scrimmage could help him grab a roster spot as a situational pass rusher.
