FIU's all-time leading tackler Johnathan Cyprien made history tonight when he became the highest drafted Panther into the NFL. The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Cyprien with the first pick of the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Cyprien surpasses T.Y. Hilton as the highest ever drafted Panther into the NFL. Hilton was taken in the third round by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2012 NFL Draft.
With the Jaguars and Colts both in the AFC South Division, Cyprien and Hilton will face each other twice each season. FIU vs. FIU.
