Western Michigan FS
While I consider myself to watch as much college football as most fans, I must admit I didn't catch any Western Michigan games this year. Typically this fact wouldn't bother me much, but after learning about Louis Delmas, I wish I had paid more attention to the team. He's been drawing a lot of attention to himself at the Senior Bowl practices, and most scouts are naming him and Chung the best safeties on the field. SI had this so say about Delmas:
Louis Delmas/S/Western Michigan: Delmas has been the best safety on the field and the feisty defender consistently put himself in a position to make plays on the ball all day. He throws his body around the field in an effort to stop ball handlers and delivered a number of blows that made scouts take notice. Delmas was effective in run defense and against the pass.
Although a little on the light side, Delmas is said to have the frame to add 20 - 30 pounds, without sacrificing much speed. His forty time is said to be 4.5, and scouts say he plays even faster on the field. New Era Scouting calls him an outspoken leader, with rock-solid character, never tires and is relentless on plays. They go on to say that his coverage skills are that of a corner back, and call him a play maker in every sense of the word. New Era's link to him is here.
Delmas has an incredible story, and the more I learn about him, the more I like him. I think he would fit in great with the "high character" movement going on at Dove Valley. Please read the story on him in this link, it is worth your time. Here. Any more information on Mr. Delmas would be appreciated, and as always, so is your opinion.
