New Orleans Saints rookie DT Akiem Hicks ready to return

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!

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.
