Johnathan Cyprien hasn’t had much time of late to catch up with T.Y. Hilton. Since finishing his senior season last December, Cyprien, like several other FIU Panthers, has been on a whirlwind tour preparing for the upcoming NFL Draft.
Cyprien, who became FIU’s all-time leading tackler last season, excelled at the Senior Bowl in January. During the week of Senior Bowl practice Cyprien was named Most Outstanding Defensive Back and then backed up the award with a solid performance in the game.
Cyprien then caught NFL scouts eyes at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis in February before producing another outstanding workout at FIU Pro Day in March.
On the heels of Cyprien’s tremendous off-season, the FIU safety was invited by a dozen NFL teams to visit their facilities and had private workouts for half a dozen NFL teams. Since January, Cyprien’s draft stock has skyrocketed on many projected NFL Draft boards and has been talked about by several NFL draft experts as being selected as high as the first round on Thursday night when the 2013 NFL Draft begins.
