Scouting Report on Eric Berry

by Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Berry is a great athlete who is still learning to be a great defender, but his potential is off the charts. He has good size and strength, excellent quickness and a high football IQ. He makes plays more with his raw athleticism than with technique at this point, but he breaks on the ball well and has very good ball skills. As a quarterback on offense, he’s used to having the ball in his hands which makes him dangerous on defense after an interception. Berry has good hands on defense and can go up and get the football if it’s up for grabs. He’s very explosive and has good closing speed and raw athleticism.
