Delmas is an athletic playmaker that has great instincts. He has a sleek frame that could use more mass, but he delivers devastating hits that leave a mark. He has great awareness and an explosive burst to the ball. He flashes soft hands and turns defense into offense instantly. He’s fluid in his backpedal and flips his hips nicely in coverage. He has great quickness and good straight-line speed.

Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis Their safety play in recent seasons has been poor so the Lions went with the top-rated safety in the draft with this selection.
