Former Wisconsin cornerback Faion Hicks will be joining several former Badgers on the Denver Broncos after they selected him with the 233rd overall pick in the seventh round of the 2022 NFL draft.
Hicks was an important part of one the nation’s best defenses last season and started for Wisconsin for the last four seasons. In addition to being named honorable mention All-Big Ten in 2020 and 2021, he finished last season with 27 total tackles and eight pass deflections.
Here are some of the best Twitter reactions to Hicks being selected by the Broncos:

A fifth Wisconsin player is off the board with the Broncos adding CB Faion Hicks in the seventh round.
They've now got four former #Badgers on the roster.

Faion Hicks said former Wisconsin teammate and current Broncos teammate Matt Henningsen is one of the smartest guys he’s ever met. Added he was honored to play with him.

Wisconsin cornerback Faion Hicks is the Broncos’ pick at No. 232. Two Badgers to wrap up the day. Hicks, like Henningsen, had a big Pro Day … ran a 4.37 40. Opened some eyes and moved him on up on radars.

Faion Hicks-Pretty good athlete at corner, great recovery speed, sticky in man coverage, good ball skills, good footwork. Developmental reserve as a slot corner.

Sticky CB. Stays in the hip pocket of the WR, with a last-second knack for getting a hand in the path of the ball. Early Special Teams contributor, with CB upside.
