Best Position Fit
Deluca is a competitor. Has great instincts, awareness, and tackles with purpose. Plays well in coverage. Is very tough. He played with a separated shoulder for 3 games before getting redshirted in 2016.
Comes from a small school, and played a lower level of competition.
Deluca could become a starting 3-down linebacker in the NFL. He plays fast. He could possibly run very well at the combine and turn some heads.
Senior Bowl Notes
Did an excellent job containing the edge, shedding blocks, and making perimeter tackles on the ball carriers. Moved extremely well in drills. Made a nice play on a ball and picked off Tanner Lee. Improved his stock during the practices.
