Report: Delmas has visit scheduled with Pats
|03.27.09 at 11:15 am ET|
According to profootballtalk.com, Western Michigan safety Louis Delmas has a pre-draft visit scheduled with the Patriots. The 5-foot-11, 202-pound Delmas, a four-year starter and three-time all-conference safety, is projected to be one of the first safeties taken in next month’s draft, possibly a late first- or second-round selection.
In his career at Western Michigan, Delmas finished with 12 interceptions. As a senior, he had five games where he had 10 or more tackles, and finished the 2008 season with 109 tackles overall. Last month at the NFL Scouting Combine, Delmas posted a 4.50 in the 40-yard dash, which tied for third-fastest among safeties. In addition, he also posted a 37″ vertical jump, a 10-foot-6 broad jump and a 4.17-second time in the 20-yard shuttle.
PFT.com reports that Delmas also has pre-draft visits scheduled with Ravens, Falcons, Jets, Saints, Broncos, Dolphins, Browns and Cowboys. The news on Delmas comes on the heels of New England’s decision to invite Cincinnati defensive end/linebacker/tight end Connor Barwin in for a pre-draft visit earlier this week. Teams are allowed 30 pre-draft visits in all.
