Overview

Western Michigan's offense received a lot of attention this season, but the Broncos' top prospect plays defense. A four-year starter and three-time all-conference safety, scouts have concerns about his ability to hold up against NFL size and strength as a run defender. Delmas is a natural playmaker in coverage and a more physical hitter than his size would indicate.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Athletic build with the frame to carry additional mass. ... Active safety, unafraid to come up and support the run. ... Physical defender who flashes some explosiveness as a hitter. ... Reliable form tackler who attacks ballcarriers at their knees and wraps up securely. ... Good lateral agility to break down in space in the open field. ... Good instincts in coverage. ... Reads the quarterback and breaks on the ball. ... Smooth backpedal and appears to have at least adequate straight-line speed. ... Natural playmaker. ... Times his leaps well and can highpoint passes. ... Team captain. Negatives: Lacks the bulk most teams prefer. ... Likes to evade blockers, rather than taking them on and shedding blocks. ... Resorts to low tackles and will, occasionally, duck his head and swipe. ... Can be more pesky than forceful as a tackler and will get dragged, at times. ... Aggressive defender; can be beaten with play-action. ... Questionable level of competition.
