Giants Roster Breakdown: Nat Berhe, S

Nat Berhe - USA TODAY Sports

Let's take a look at one of the Giants' two fifth-round draft picks.

New York Giants' training camp is closer than you think, so let's continue our player-by-player breakdown of the 90-man roster that will report to the team's Quest Diagnostics Training Center practice facility on July 21. Today, we look at rookie safety Nat Berhe, one of the Giants two fifth-round picks in the 2014 NFL Draft.

2013 Season In Review

Berhe had 99 tackles (5.5 for loss) and six passes defensed for the San Diego State Aztecs. The 6-foot, 190-pound Berhe played a hybrid safety/linebacker spot for San Diego State, something that should endear him to Giants' defensive coordinator Perry Fewell. Fewell, of course, has made heavy use of a three-safety package over the years, replacing a linebacker with an addition safety.

2014 Outlook

Let's dispense with the idea that Berhe can be the replacement for that recently-released safety who shall not be named. Berhe's contributions as a rookie should come on special teams -- just like Tyler Sash, Cooper Taylor and that recently-released safety we don't discuss as rookies.

"This guy is really productive, a tackling machine, a little bit undersized but you just can't deny how this guy is a football player," GM Jerry Reese said after the Giants selected Berhe. "He's all over the place; he'll play on all of your special teams. Very productive, a really good football player."

Most reports consider Berhe a player who is likely to be a solid special teams player who develops into a capable backup. For 2014, that should be enough.
