Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his junior season. Struggled with a shoulder injury as a senior and totaled just 31/1/11. Junior numbers included 41/3/10.
Positives: Small yet quick cornerback who plays a big game. Displays good overall awareness, effectively reads receivers? eyes, and gets his head back around to locate the pass. Shows a nice break to the throw, effectively positions himself against opponents, and works hard to defend the pass or stop the run. Shows good overall recognition and picks up assignments in zone.
Negatives: Undersized, easily blocked from the action or out muscled by larger opponents. Lacks the great timed speed.
Analysis: Berry is a hard-charging defender always working to get involved in the action and make plays on the ball. His development last year was slowed with the shoulder injury, yet he has possibilities as a dime back who can play over a slot receiver in zone coverage.
