Draft Result

Drafted in the 2010 Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 1st round with the #5 pick.
Eric Berry is one of the top players in the 2010 draft and fills the Chiefs need for playmaker/difference maker on the defensive side of the ball. He has the versatility to be a centerfielder, play in the box or cover a slot receiver in man coverage. Many were expecting the Chiefs to take an offensive tackle especially with Russell Okung on the board but the Chiefs felt Berry's upside as an Ed Reed-type difference maker was too good to pass up for a team needing talent on both sides of the football.

Strengths

  • A playmaking safety who has been compared to Ed Reed
  • Playmaker - 494 career interception return yards and 3 return TDs
  • Big hitter who excels in run support
  • Excellent range and coverage awareness
  • Has the speed, quickness and agility for man coverage
  • Good instincts both in coverage and against the run
  • Versatile. Some believe his best NFL position could be corner
  • Intelligent
  • A leader with strong character
  • 3 year starter
 

Weaknesses

  • Lacks ideal size for a safety
  • May struggle blitzing up the middle at the next level due to his lack of bulk
  • Would benefit from getting stronger to handle the rigors of the pro game
  • Played in the box a lot in college and will have to adapt to playing further away from the ball in the pros
