Isame & Hickman go the FA route

Looks like NFL Network Draft Analyst/Scout Mike Mayock nailed this one.

Mayock said he saw FIU defensive tackles Isame Faciane and Greg Hickman as priority free agents instead of draft picks. Sure enough, after the draft wheel stopped turning Saturday, Faciane signed with Minnesota and Hickman signed with Detroit.

No surprises here. Both played well during 2013 and Hickman, especially, played courageously on a mangled ankle all season. That's painful to people built like Pixie Stix. Imagine doing that at a squarish 275 pounds.

No matter if either young man makes it in the NFL, FIU should be proud of them. Talk to people who've known each for a while and you'll hear about the personal growth each has made as men while at FIU. That lasts many times longer than an NFL career.
