PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Lions S Louis Delmas, the first player drafted at his position, created major buzz during offseason workouts. The over-the-top, energetic rookie from Western Michigan projects to develop into a Bob Sanders-type player.
Delmas also has one of the most interesting stories among this rookie class, and he shared it with me today at the symposium. I’m going to have a longer piece about him next week, but to tease you, he hasn’t seen his parents in more than 10 years. His story is a captivating struggle, but it has helped him become the person and player that he is.
