    Jordan Hicks, LB, Philadelphia Eagles

    450 defensive snaps, third-round pick (2015), age 24

    As with Henry Anderson's knee, Hicks' season-ending pectoral injury preserved his eligibility for this list. Hicks played an immediate role for the Eagles, with the highest run-stop rate among all linebackers on the team last year. Going forward, he projects as a true three-down linebacker. The only question: Can he stay on the field? Hicks lost two seasons at Texas to hip problems and an Achilles injury. This is starting to become a trend, and it's the reason he's a bit lower on this list even though he has top-five talent.
