Ranking Top 50 NFL Players Ahead of 2019-20 Season

49. Akiem Hicks

The mammoth defensive tackle is the heartbeat of the Bears’ vaunted defense. Hicks takes up a ton of space, and actually has legit pass-rushing skills (7.5 sacks, 12.0 tackles-for-loss). His versatility in being able to flip-flop between defensive tackle and defensive end also makes life difficult for teams trying to scheme for the Bears.
