The Cleveland Browns traded down in Round 2 (from 41 to 4) and ended up selecting Lousiana State University safety Grant Delpit.
Cross safety off the list of positions of need. The Cleveland Browns addressed their defense in Round 2 and selected LSU safety Grant Delpit with the 44th overall pick. This was after trading down from 41 to 44 and picking up pick number 160.
Cleveland was still able to get a safety after moving down three spots by selecting Grant Delpit thanks to some questionable selections before pick 44.
Grant Delpit very well could have gone in Round 1 if it was not for his injuries last season. While Delpit can be a physical safety, he is prone to missing tackles and will need to work on this area in order to be a consistent player in the NFL.
Delpit should slot into the starting lineup with Karl Joseph. What this also means is that it relegates Andrew Sendejo into a part-time role. This was essential since Sendejo is no longer a full time player. Delpit also provides a potential long term solution at the back end of the secondary since both Joseph and Sendejo are on one-year deals.
Now that the safety position has been taken care of, Cleveland needs to look at other positions on defense in need of attention.
