The Lions targeted safety in FA. Most mocks have the Lions drafting at least one safety. I think it’s obvious we could use some top end talent at DB.
The guy that fans keep saying and mocks keep projecting to us is LSU safety Grant Delpit. But I’m not a fan of his mainly due to his poor tackling issues.
The guy I like is 6’3” 222 lbs Jeremy Chinn. I think this guy has the makings to go very high in the draft. He had a great combine and was very productive too. Let’s take a closer look.
At the combine Chinn ran a 4.46 in the 40-yard dash, recorded an 11’6" long jump and a 41-inch vertical jump.
Chinn was productive in college posting up 243 tackles, 13 interceptions, 31 passes defended and six forced fumbles for SIU.
This kid can play.
For all you guys who like LB/S Simmons pass rushing ability then watch this clip of Chinn. Unfortunately SIU didn’t safety blitz much.
If you like Simmons than you should like Chinn. Personally I like Simmons but not in the top 10 and I think Chinn could go as early as late round one. But I’m seeing him as an option with our second pick.
Who do you like at Safety and why?
