Giants Draft Picks 2014: Giants select Nat Berhe in Round 5

New, comments

The New York Giants have made their selection in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.


The New York Giants selected San Diego State safety Nat Berhe in Round 5 of the 2014 NFL Draft. The pack was the 12th in Round 5 and the 152nd overall.

Berhe played strong safety at San Diego State, where he was a team captain and led the Aztecs with 99 tackles as a senior. Berhe was a two-star defensive back recruit out of high school, and he initially committed to UTEP before switching to San Diego State. He became the first Aztec safety since 1999 to earn All-Mountain West Conference honors in three straight seasons.

Pre-draft scouting reports considered Berhe a strong safety capable of pursuing ball carriers by using aggressive angles being quick on his feet and utilizing solid peripheral vision for above-average awareness. Against the run, the 5'11, 193-pound Berhe is willing to throw his body around to finish a tackle. He's the "high-motor, high-character" prospect that seems especially valuable in the later rounds.

We'll have more on Berhe and the rest of the Giants' picks right here on Big Blue View throughout the day.
