The Saints join the party, select Akiem Hicks with 89th pick
Akiem Hicks, defensive tackle, University of Regina (Canada) (6-5, 324)
Hicks is a former 5-star recruit who was signed to go to LSU until some recruiting violations. However, he’s an impressive physical specimen with a good first step, natural bend and power and a ton of upside. Is only starting to scratch the surface of his potential.
