# Akiem Hicks RAS ### Akiem Hicks RAS Akiem Hicks was drafted by Saints with pick 89 in round 3 in the 2012 NFL Draft out of Regina.

This player was selected to at least one pro bowl in his career.

This player put up 7.5 sacks or more in a single season at least once in his NFL career.

He recorded a Relative Athletic Score of 5.96, out of a possible 10.0. RAS is a composite metric on a 0 to 10 scale based on the average of all of the percentile for each of the metrics the player completed either at the Combine or pro day.

He had a recorded height of 6045 that season, recorded as XYYZ where X is feet, YY is inches, and Z is eighths of an inch. That correlates to 6 feet, 4 and 5/8 of an inch or 76.625 inches, or 194.6275 centimeters. This correlates to a 8.89 score out of 10.0.

He recorded a weight of 318 in pounds, which is approximately 144 kilograms. This correlates to a 9.0 score out of 10.0.

Based on his weight, he has a projected 40 yard dash time of 5.19. This is calculated by taking 0.00554 multiplied by his weight and then adding 3.433.
At the Combine, he recorded a 40 yard dash of 5.23 seconds. This was a difference of 0.04 seconds from his projected time. This forty time correlates to a 2.74 score out of 10.0.

Using Bill Barnwell’s calculation, this Combine 40 time gave him a Speed Score of 85.01.

The time traveled between the 20 and 40 yard lines is known as the Flying Twenty. As the distance is also known, we can calculate the player’s speed over that distance. The time he traveled the last twenty yards at the Combine was 2.18 seconds. Over 20 yards, we can calculate his speed in yards per second to 9.17. Taking into account the distance in feet (60 feet), we can calculate his speed in feet per second to 27.52. Breaking it down further, we can calculate his speed in inches per second to 330.28. Knowing the feet per second of 27.52, we can calculate the approximate miles per hour by multiplying that value by 0.681818 to give us a calculated MPH of 18.8 in the last 20 yards of his run.

At the Combine, he recorded a 20 yard split of 3.05 seconds. This correlates to a 1.91 score out of 10.0.

We can calculate the speed traveled over the second ten yards of the 40 yard dash easily, as the distance and time are both known. The time he traveled the second ten yards at the Combine was 1.28 seconds. Over 10 yards, we can calculate his speed in yards per second to 7.81. Taking into account the distance in feet (30 feet), we can calculate his speed in feet per second to 23.44. Breaking it down further, we can calculate his speed in inches per second to 281.25. Knowing the feet per second of 23.44, we can calculate the approximate miles per hour by multiplying that value by 0.681818 to give us a calculated MPH of 16.0 in the second ten yards of his run.

At the Combine, he recorded a 10 yard split of 1.77 seconds. This correlates to a 5.84 score out of 10.0 that when multiplied by ten roughly corresponds to percentile.

The time he traveled the first ten yards at the Combine was 1.77 seconds. Over 10 yards, we can calculate his speed in yards per second to 6.0. Taking into account the distance in feet (30 feet), we can calculate his speed in feet per second to 17.0. Breaking it down further, we can calculate his speed in inches per second to 203.0. Knowing the feet per second of 17.0, we can calculate the approximate miles per hour by multiplying that value by 0.681818 to give us a calculated MPH of 11.6 in the first ten yards of his run.

At the Combine, he recorded a bench press of 26 repetitions of 225 pounds. This correlates to a 6.12 score out of 10.0.

At his pro day, he recorded a bench press of 27 seconds. Because he also recorded this metric at the Combine, his pro day did not count towards his RAS.

At the Combine, he recorded a vertical jump of 31.5 inches. This correlates to a 8.27 score out of 10.0.

At his pro day, he recorded a vertical jump of 32.0 seconds. Because he also recorded this metric at the Combine, his pro day did not count towards his RAS.

At the Combine, he recorded a broad jump of 900, which is recorded as FII or FFII . where F is feet and I is inches. This correlates to a 7.27 score out of 10.0 that when multiplied by ten roughly corresponds to percentile.

At his pro day, he recorded a broad jump of 902. Because he also recorded this metric at the Combine, his pro day did not count towards his RAS.

At the Combine, he recorded a 5-10-5 or 20 yard short shuttle of 4.86 seconds. This correlates to a 1.13 score out of 10.0.

At the Combine, he recorded a 3 cone L drill of 7.75 seconds. This correlates to a 4.59 score out of 10.0 that when multiplied by ten roughly corresponds to percentile.

At his pro day, he recorded a 3 cone L drill of 7.39 seconds. Because he also recorded this metric at the Combine, his pro day did not count towards his RAS.
