nfl.com 2018 Draft Analysis wrote:
Dee Delaney
CB
College: Miami (Sr), The Citadel (Fr-Jr)

Height 6' 0"
Weight 200 lbs
Arms 30 1/2
Hands 9 3/4”


Overview
Graduate transfer from The Citadel who looked overmatched during much of his senior season at Miami. Delaney doesn't have the suddenness or coverage talent to stick with crafty route runners from the slot while big, fast receivers can beat him down the field. While he's an aggressive, willing tackler against the run, he may lack the requisite cover talent to make it in the league.

Strengths

* Intelligent on and off the field
* Former high school wide receiver with ball skills and soft hands to flip the field when throws are near him
* Fights hard on 50-50 throws
* Has 14 career interceptions
* Quick to diagnose run and head downhill to get a piece when unblocked
* Challenges big receivers with aggressive punches and works off the block for tackles
* Showed improvement in confidence and coverage as season wore on

Weaknesses

* Plays with hip tightness and below average athletic ability
* Backpedals with a very narrow base
* Lacks knee bend and smoothness in his transitions
* Struggled badly to stay connected to routes as an outside cornerback
* Lost playing time due to poor, early performance
* Feet get heavy in the grass when asked to stick and close on throws
* Below average makeup speed
* Allows workable separation from breaks
* Too many swing-and-miss jam attempts from press
* Posted just two passes defensed on 39 targets this year

Draft Projection
Priority free agent
