Is a bit short by NFL standards, but does a nice job playing with natural leverage in the run game and can be physical into contact. However, consistently ends up with his hands outside the pad level of opposing blockers and although he does anchor initially at the point, he consistently loses on his second step and can be pushed away from the play because of his inability to gain leverage with his hands. Now, he has the coordination and power to then fight his way off blocks and shed. Nevertheless, is a solid, but not dominant, run defender even when lined up at defensive end as a five-technique.
Impression: He's undersized and does exhibit some pop out of his stance into contact. But doesn't have the anchor to hold up inside vs. the run, lacks the length to play the five-technique and doesn't seem sudden enough laterally to be a productive pass rusher inside. More of a free agent/camp body type."
Positive: Undersized yet versatile defensive lineman with a variety of skills. Quickly gets off the snap, effectively works his hands, and shows good punch with the ability to knock lineman from blocks. Goes very hard, stays with the action, and resilient. Plays heads-up football. Rarely off his feet. Displays skill in coverage on zone blitzes and is fluid changing direction.
Negative: Very slow shedding blocks. Marginal skills rushing the passer. Not a great athlete.
Analysis: Berry has been a consistent player for West Virginia and is a prospect who does the little things well. He lacks great size/speed numbers yet is productive in enough areas that he'll get consideration as a backup in a one-gap system."
