NEW ORLEANS — NFL Safety Grant Delpit, a key piece of LSU's National Championship winning defense, will miss his rookie season after tearing his Achilles tendon.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the injury was confirmed by an MRI.
Delpit was taken by the Cleveland Browns with the No. 44 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Delpit won the Jim Thorpe Award for best defensive back in college football during his time at LSU.
