Next up is LB/DE DeVon Hicks. At his listed 6'3" and 240 pounds he would have to play linebacker or be such a good pass rusher that the Packers keep him on the roster as a situational pass rusher only. The Packers have had some guys like that on their roster over the last few seasons, but none of them have lasted very long. However his agent says he has bulked up to 260 pounds which would be good enough to play defensive end. John Murphy had this to say about Hicks:
Then there is C Pete Bier. At 6'3" and 295 pounds he's got the height to play in the middle of the offensive line, but he is undersized and will have trouble against the big monster defensive tackles. You have to like that he was four year starter at Army. Of course he's a real longshot, but the Packers aren't too deep at center and guard so he could stick with the team if he has a strong training camp. If he can survive the first few cuts of training camp and the preseason, he might manage to hang on as a member of the practice squad.
