Western Michigan FS Louis Delmas

ChiefsDude with the pick...

I went with the BPA in round one because I had anticipated having a LB available to me in the 2nd. With Sintim off the boards, I'm pretty disgusted with my options. Marcus Freeman is the next OLB on the boards but he's too much of a reach here, in my opinion. There are some durability concerns and the Texans really needed a strongside linebacker. If I had it to do over again, I probably would've gone with Clay Matthews at pick 15.

Had I chosen a LB in the first round, this pick would've made a lot more sense. The Texans need more depth at FS and Louis Delmas is probably going to start for whichever team drafts him. Assuming Jenkins would play CB for the Texans, Delmas would really complete Houston's secondary. Unfortunately, they still have a big hole at SLB. I guess that's the way the cookie crumbles. Here's some more on Delmas by Scott Wright:

"A four-year starter in the MAC...Was named a captain in 2007 and 2008...Brother, Greg Joseph, plays safety at Florida Atlantic...Second Team All-MAC as a junior and First Team All-MAC as a senior...Was the Broncos leading tackler in 2008...A dynamic safety with a well-rounded game who stands out in run and pass defense...Had a terrific senior campaign and really improved his draft stock...Physical tools are basically adequate across the board and his intangibles are top-notch...Eerily similar in many ways to Tyrell Johnson, who was an early 2nd round pick of the Minnesota Vikings in the 2008 NFL Draft."

Round 1 is here.

Previous pick: LB Clint Sintim
