Eric Berry, S - Tennessee
Pick made by sanders_fan89:
The Chiefs need help in a lot of areas but one of the most glaring areas was Safety. The Chiefs had the 29th scoring defense in the NFL last year, and both of their safeties currently playing are not starter material in the NFL. Mike Brown has shown that he is too injury prone and John McGraw has struggled in coverage. In a division with Phillip Rivers and their high flying passing attack, they need to be able to stop San Diego from airing it out if they want any chance of winning the AFC West. Berry can step in as a rookie starter and make an instant impact. He has soft hands and great instincts. Also he has a nose for turning INTs into TDs. Berry plays a lot like Ravens S Ed Reed. Berry is a great prospect who still has a lot of potential.
The Chiefs could also go with LT, NT or LB here, but no player in any of those positions is worth the pick at number 5 with Berry still on the board. [GM] Scott Pioli has also shown a tendency to take defensive players in the first round of the draft. This is why the Chiefs select Eric Berry at number 5 overall.
If Berry is taken #5 by the Chiefs, it would be the first DB taken in the first round by the Chiefs since 1996, when. He will also be the highest Tennessee player drafted since Jamal Lewis was drafted #5 overall by the Ravens in 2000.
