Odell Beckham Jr. welcomes fellow LSU Tiger Grant Delpit to the Browns

Odell Beckham Jr. took to Twitter on Friday to welcome fellow LSU alum Grant Delpit to the Cleveland Browns.

For the second straight year, the Cleveland Browns used a second-round pick on a defensive back from LSU.

And for the second straight year, Odell Beckham Jr. took to Twitter to welcome a fellow Tiger to his new team.

On Friday, the Browns used the No. 44 pick of the 2020 NFL Draft to select LSU safety Grant Delpit. And less than an hour later, Beckham was taking to social media to express his excitement about playing alongside another member of his alma mater.

"OKKKK la brudda more of us in the locker room we neeed dat!!!! LSU @realgrantdelpit," Beckham wrote.

Delpit is the third former LSU Tiger to become a member of the Browns' roster in the last two years, joining Beckham, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and 2019 second-round pick Greedy Williams. Similarly, Beckham took to social media during last year's second-round to express his excitement over Cleveland drafting Williams, who went on to start 12 games in his rookie season with the Browns.

Meanwhile, Beckham shared a more tempered enthusiasm when the Browns used the No. 10 pick in Thursday night's first round to select Alabama offensive tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. Alabama, of course, is LSU's biggest rival -- although that didn't stop Wills from expressing his own excitement for playing alongside Beckham.

"Bama boy," Beckham tweeted, along with a slew of angry emojis. "Lol guess we [cool] now."

"Just lemme know how much time you need to finish your route 13," Wills replied.
