Grant Delpit, S, LSU

My name’s PhillyBirdGang. Real name, no gimmicks. Ok, it’s a gimmick. I’m Bill, I’m from South Jersey, I’ve been a die-hard 4for4 my entire life, and I’m addicted to BGN. It’s a problem.

Enough about me though, let’s get to my selection. Grant Delpit, S, LSU. The guy checks all of the boxes for one of the many positions Dallas is missing on defense. When in the box, he excels in attacking downfield to stop the run. In his three seasons at LSU, he’s recorded 17.5 TFL’s, eight picks and seven sacks.

Grant earned First-Team All-SEC in 2018 and 2019, unanimous All-American honors, and the Jim Thorpe Award in 2019. I’m sure you’re all aware, but the Jim Thorpe Award is given to the best DB in all of college football. Delpit packs physicality, versatility, and an incredible football IQ, capable of leading a defense for years to come.

Highlight reel:

While not as polished, I think Delpit will be the 2020 NFL Draft’s Jamal Adams and I thoroughly believe a lot of teams will regret passing on this kid come 2021-2022 when he develops into a top safety in the NFL.

But ... I have him going to Dallas so, here’s to hoping I’m wrong.
