Few are more qualified to judge defensive backs than Monte Kiffin, and he lauded the abilities of Tennessee safety Eric Berry. That’s good enough for me. Berry hits like a linebacker and has a knack for making big plays as a ballhawk. He’s patterned his game after Ed Reed, and I think he could play safety at a similar level. Some have suggested Berry could be moved to cornerback. In that case, he’ll be a great cornerback. While I’m bullish on Berry, I’m not putting much stock in Alabama’s overweight defensive tackle, Terrence Cody. He seemed to take plays off and wasn’t always dominant against college linemen. I think he won’t be as great a factor when facing more effective pro linemen.
