LSU safety Grant Delpit and outside linebacker K'Lavon Chaisson were both named to ESPN's 2019 preseason All-American team this week.

Clemson led with four picks on the team, following by Alabama with three and LSU and Georgia with two each.

Here's what ESPN had to say about Chaisson and Delpit:

LB: K'Lavon Chaisson, LSU
The fact that Chaisson will wear the coveted No. 18 this season tells you what those in the LSU program think of him. He blew out his knee in the season opener a year ago after wowing in the preseason. The 6-foot-4, 250-pound sophomore is a blur rushing the passer from his outside linebacker position, and if he can stay healthy, he will be as disruptive as anyone in the college game this season.

S: Grant Delpit, LSU
LSU has had its share of great safeties over the years, but Delpit has a chance to be right up there with any of them and will be a main cog in Dave Aranda's defense. The 6-foot-3, 203-pound junior is relentless and flies all over the field. He had five sacks and five interceptions last season, and that was just a glimpse of how disruptive he's poised to be in 2019.
