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

Draft Scout Louis Delmas News
10/15/14 - S Louis Delmas appears to still be playing strong safety even with the return of Reshad Jones (suspension), the previous strong safety. It was presumed Delmas would go back to free safety, but he remains the one in the box when the Dolphins go to the eight-man front while Jones is deep.
09/24/14 - S Louis Delmas, who shared time with Michael Thomas last week, seems to have re-gained his starting job. Thomas started at Buffalo two weeks ago. It appears the Dolphins favor Thomas against the pass and Delmas against the run.
09/18/14 - S Louis Delmas (calf) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He was limited Wednesday.
09/17/14 - S Louis Delmas (calf), who didn't start last week at Buffalo, was limited in Wednesday's practice.
08/21/14 - S Louis Delmas plays an aggressive style that has him way up front, at a depth between the defensive line and linebackers, when the Dolphins go to an eight-man front. The problem is Delmas sometimes misses tackles, which puts pressure on the linebackers and defensive backs to make the stop. Watch that against Dallas.
