Cleveland Browns under the radar player No. 2 – Grant Delpit
The Browns have drafted two guys recently that I feel were brought in to stop Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah showed he was exactly that last week, but I think you could see Grant Delpit also stand out this week as the other guy.
Delpit has is the third safety that plays a good amount of snaps in the dime scheme but thrives being moved around the field. Delpit has shown he can be an effective blitzer and is not afraid to lower his head and tackle a running back.
With Walker expected to miss the game on Sunday, I think you will see a lot of dime looks with Delpit and/or Ronnie Harrison in the box. They will need to bodies to slow down the run, as well as the athleticism to tackle Jackson in the open field.
I’m not ready to say Delpit has been a disappointment this year, but he has yet to have a game with more than six total tackles. A guy who is moving around the field and is meant to be put in positions to make plays should be stuffing the stat sheet a bit more than he is currently.
Every single player in the locker room knows the playoffs are gone if they don’t win this game, Delpit could be a guy that really shines in Week 14 and helps lead the Browns to victory.
