There is this old saying in sports that goes ‘you can’t teach size’. While skills can be learned and body muscle can be built, pure girth or height is only given naturally. Delpit was blessed with this gift and this is the last reason why the Cowboys should do what they have to do for the opportunity to take him.
Standing at 6 feet 3 inches tall, Delpit possesses tremendous size for any secondary player, nevertheless one of the ones responsible for being the last line of defense. That needs no explanation, at that size and with the skills we have already raved about, he has everything he needs to one day become great. Hopefully, the Cowboys put themselves in a position where this greatness may one day be realized in their uniform.
The Dallas Cowboys have had a long-standing need for a playmaker in the secondary, they have needed safety help for multiple seasons prior to the one we are headed into, and they currently have three safeties from last season that are free agents to be in Jeff Heath, Kavon Frazier, and Darian Thompson. This is practically a no-brainer.
Throw in the facts that Grant Delpit is a mid-first round (17th to be exact) rated talent at the moment by Pro Football Focus and that the Dallas Cowboys are projected to or will have the 17th overall pick, it seems destined to happen. The aforementioned little fluffy details along with the three main reasons detailed in bold above are why the Cowboys should posture and place themselves in a position to take Delpit in the upcoming NFL Draft.
