Eric Berry, S, Tennessee.
Playing the role of General Manager for the Chiefs is 'ronjohnson.' He writes:
Eric Berry has that rare combination of elite speed and strength that will make make him a perennial All Pro at safety for the Chiefs. KC General Manager Scott Pioli knows that defense wins championships. Good pass defense has become paramount for success in the NFL today. Just look to their AFC West rival San Diego Chargers and the importance of a talent like Berry in the middle making plays becomes obvious. Berry is the defensive leader and ballhawk the Chiefs defense desperately needs. He is a dominant safety who can stuff the run and can also cover elite receivers. By forcing turnovers with fumbles and interceptions, he will help the Chiefs defense become a force in the AFC West.
My take: The Chiefs need tons of help on the defensive side of the ball, and Berry is the best defensive player on the board. So, this is the logical pick for the Chiefs. And one they would likely be happy with for years to come. Remember, to read the explanations for previous picks click the highlighted player name.
