Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 2/33 -- Louis Delmas, S, 5-11, 202, Western Michigan...The Lions already had two second-round safeties. But Daniel Bullocks (2006) missed the '07 season with a torn ACL, and Gerald Alexander (2007) missed much of the '08 season with a fractured vertebra. So they added a second-round safety for the third time in four years. Delmas is small. But Mayhew pointed out Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu were about his size when drafted. Schwartz lauded Delmas' versatility, aggressiveness and passion, calling him a "guided missile." - by The Sports Xchange

He tore the same ACL that was surgically repaired 10 months ago.
