Revenge Of The Birds Community Mock Draft: 5th Pick, Kansas City Chiefs

With the 5th pick of the Revenge of the Birds community mock draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select...

Eric Berry | Safety | Tennessee
GM: Pyromnc

Strengths: Berry has the rare skill sets that most team's coaching staffs would be drooling over to have on their roster. He has the agility, hands, recognition, and coverage skills to make a big play happen in the passing game, similar to an Ed Reed of the Baltimore Ravens. Than he has the ability to drop down in the box and either put pressure on the quarterback, or provide very good run support, similar to an Adrian Wilson. Berry also has the speed and coverage skills to play corner, giving defensive coordinators more flexibility in their play-calling. His leadership skills are also worth mentioning as he would do just about anything Tennessee DC would ask of him (in his junior season he not only started at safety but he also contributed on special teams). Berry, in my opinion, is the safest pick in the draft behind Nebraska's NT, Suh.

Negatives: He's is a bit small for the position, listed at 5-11 and 203 pounds. Although the size has not been a problem for him, it is still a red flag. He also tends to lead with his shoulders looking for a big hit instead of wrapping up the ball carrier and bringing him down. With the type of high-caliber player that Berry is though, these problems won't be a big deal.

Why the Chiefs will take him: The Chiefs have many needs on their team and they could possibly go defensive tackle here with Gerald McCoy on the board, but Berry is too good to pass on. Not only will he upgrade that awful secondary immediately, but he will also help out in the run defense that was ranked 31st in the NFL last season. This too me, is just a no brainer on KC's part.
