BIO: Former Florida transfer that's started the past two seasons throwing for 56.2 percent/2,509/21/5 as a senior after 59.9 percent/2,419/12/17 the prior year. Second team All-Conference choice in .04.
POSITIVES: Improving passer with the skill to backup at the next level. Quick setting up in the pocket, displays good field vision and greatly improved his decision making as a senior. Sharp on the intermediate throws and threads the ball between defenders. Times the outs well. Poised as the pocket collapses around him, displays a quick release and takes the big hit in order to get the throw off. Goes to the safety valve in the underneath coverage if nothing's available downfield. Buys time for receivers and lets them come free before delivering the ball. Some ability to roll outside the pocket and accurately make the throw.
NEGATIVES: Cannot drive the deep throw and not accurate down the field. Misses open wideouts because of poor long accuracy. Falls out of throws and struggles getting the ball to the flanks. Must improve his touch.
ANALYSIS: A solid short and intermediate range passer who responded with a good senior campaign, Berlin has gone from a draft afterthought to a legitimate late-round pick. Lacks the size and strength to earn a starting job in the NFL, yet could thrive as a team's third passer.
