Best Team Fits

  • Cowboys: Year after year the Cowboys ignore a glaring need at Safety, perhaps that ignorance will end with Delpit.
  • Dolphins: The Dolphins could use an upgrade at both Safety spots, so it's possible they target Delpit with of one of their three first round picks.
  • Eagles: The Eagles secondary needs a talent infusion and update at Safety, Delpit would be a nice addition.
  • Colts: The Colts have an opening at Safety next to Malik Hooker - Delpit would be an impact addition to a defense that needs a dynamic force.
