Oscar Delp, TE No. 4
Delp was a freshman last season, and behind Brock Bowers and Darnell Washington, he only made five catches all year. He certainly didn’t factor into the matchup against Missouri. Though with Brock Bowers out, Delp figured to be a big part of the gameplan against Florida last week. Still, he only made two catches for 31 yards.
Ladd McConkey, not Delp, was the big beneficiary of Bower’s absence, but with another week of work at the No. 1 tight end, Delp’s production should increase against Mizzou. Not only will he be more familiar running all the routes that were previously Bower’s, but Beck will be more comfortable looking for No. 4 over the middle of the field instead of No. 19.
In its win last week, Missouri allowed South Carolina tight end Trey Knox to make five catches to lead the Gamecocks. Delp has played every game this year and has 15 catches for 191 yards and two touchdowns. His career high is three catches, which he has done twice.
