From Florida International website: Faciane posted a career-high 53 tackles during the 2013 season, the most for any FIU defensive lineman. Ranking sixth in C-USA with 11.5 tackles for a loss, Faciane’s two TFLs at UTEP moved him up to sixth on FIU’s all-time list. Faciane blocked Southern Miss’ 44-yard field goal attempt as time expired to preserve FIU’s 24-23 victory on Oct. 5. He had two blocked field goals last season, becoming just the fourth player in FIU history to block two kicks in one season.

From Draft Insider scouting report: Faciane slipped under the scouting radar despite his terrific senior campaign and offers size, growth potential, and the ability to line up as a two-gap end or 3-technique tackle. If he plays well in camp this summer he will have a real opportunity to make an active roster.
