New Orleans Saints rookie DT Akiem Hicks ready to return
 
Defensive tackle Akiem Hicks, recovering from a fractured hand, said Thursday he is ready to return to action and has been told he will play Sunday in the Saints first preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals. "I've been waiting to get back to contact for so long and it's finally here," said Hicks, the club's third round draft pick in last April's NFL draft.

I hope this guy works out. We have had good luck with later round picks in the past so hopefully this guy will follow suit

As highly recruited as he was by LSU, he's gotta have the potential to be great!

I'm really lookin' forward to seein' him play! Seems there's a lot of upside about the man.

A third round pick isn't necessarily a late round. Anyway, he'll probably surprise some folks in preseason.

DT has been a sore spot for us for a long time... hope this kid turns out to be a good one. His level of competition was so much lower in Canada that I'm a little worried about how he will read to the speed of the game in the NFL.
