I did watch a few games that season and what was good about Berry was his jump on the play and his speed coming down to make some big hits and tackles. As we recall, Berry's question mark was whether he would stop the hitting and wrap up.
“From what I’ve seen they use him more like a linebacker,
putting him in the box,” Virginia Tech quarterback Tyrod Taylor
said. "He’s a big hitter. He’s strong in defending the running
“We know he can run the field and he does cover the field well.
But as far as the tapes I’ve seen, he’s down playing linebacker
and he gets to the ball quick.”
