Coach Mangurian on Paul Delaney: Big leg, can change field position. Improved with his punting as far as pinning opponents inside the 20. Tough mentally, expects a lot of himself and is accountable and self motivated. Puts in the film time to study and work on his technique. He is a weapon and I trust him in critical situations. Need to identify his back up.
