LSU junior Grant Delpit was named to the preseason watch list for Jim Thorpe Award, which is presented annually to the best defensive back in college football.

Former Tigers Patrick Peterson won the award in 2010 and followed Morris Claiborne in 2011. Per LSUSports.net:

Rated as the No. 1 defensive back in college football heading in to the 2019 season by USA Today, Delpit is also listed on the Bednarik Award Watch List.

One of only nine unanimous All-Americas in LSU history, Delpit led the Southeastern Conference interceptions (5) and ranked No. 2 in the league in passes defended (14) in 2018. He led the Tigers in sacks (5.0), finished third in tackles (74), and added another 10.5 tackles for loss.

For his outstanding defensive play as a sophomore in 2018, Delpit was one of five finalist for the Nagurski Trophy as well as being a first team All-SEC selection.
