2. Grant Delpit, S, LSU
Depending on how free agency shakes out, Grant Delpit could be a fit for the Browns if Andrew Berry decides to trade down on draft day.
With Cleveland letting Damarious Randall test free agency, safety is now a major hole to fill, as there’s no one on the roster capable of taking over.
John Dorsey spend a late-round pick on Sheldrick Redwine last year, but the second-year veteran looks better suited to be a strong safety, meaning the Browns have to do something, either via the draft or free agency.
Delpit is a player who’s been mocked all over the place this season. Months ago, there were mocks who had the LSU product going to the Browns at No. 10. Since then, his stock has seemed to dropped a little, as it’s more common to see him being picked in the mid-teens.
PFF projected Delpit to have the best “playmaker rate” among any other safety prospect in the draft. This stat forecasts pass breakups and interceptions. He’s drawn comparisons to Devin McCourty and Earl Thomas.
