Grading Saints Third Pick, Akiem Hicks.
 
Grading The New Orleans Saints Third Round Pick Defensive Tackle Akiem Hicks : New Orleans Saints

What do you guys think about him? I gave this pick a B-.

Media and fans will often try to bash a pick if they necessarily don’t understand the reasoning behind it. Just because you don’t agree with the pick or you may have graded a player differently, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a terrible choice. It just means your eyes and understanding the fundamentals of a player is different than an NFL organization.
I like it, especially the reasoning for not taking Crick...

As for the pick, I think he's a project with a lot of potential. Spagnoulo has a knack for fielding excellent lineman, I trust he will make Hicks the best he can be...

I'm projecting him to be in the rotation early.

B minus...

Why? Why are you grading a player who hasn't played a down yet?

I would give the pick potential a C. He was courted by LSU so he has skills and he is huge. Will probably be part of a rotation on the back end, but as long as he fills a need he's worth the pick.

I'll wait and see. In Loomis I trust !

After defensive tackles Aubrayo Franklin and Shaun Rogers signing elsewhere this offseason as unrestricted free agents, the Saints needed to draft a prospect to potentially fill a spot in the rotation behind Brodrick Bunkley, who the Saints brought in during the offseason, and Sedrick Ellis.
Who did Franklin sign with? I have totally missed that transaction if there was one.

Wikipedia says he is still a free agent

In wikipedia we trust! ;-)


The NFL FA tracker doesn't have him signed with anyone yet, so I'm not sure where the opposite information is coming from?

That was my mistake. I could have sworn I read that he signed with Kansas City. I should have re-checked that.

Editing that part out. >_>
