Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Very good pursuit speed and acceleration, using aggressive angles?easy pedal and quick feet, staying balanced in his movements?uses his peripheral vision to quickly locate and avoid blocks on his way to the ballcarrier?uses his eyes well to read and react, trusting what he sees?heady player who recognizes his keys to anticipate where the ball is headed?closes well with an attacking attitude, striking through his target?physical attitude and throws his body around as a run defender?active hands to initiate contact and fight through blocks?high motor with the football character and competitive drive desired by NFL teams?durable and versatile starting experience (41 career starts), seeing playing time at both safety spots and NB and leading the team in tackles the past two years.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks ideal size and strength and doesn?t have an imposing frame to get much bigger ? below average length and hand size?plays fast, but his natural speed isn?t impressive, something that shows when asked to cover vertically?not twitchy and has some hip tightness?plays active, but is sometimes too energetic and overpursues his target?room to improve his tackling technique to better break down, strike and wrap ? often needed the cavalry to help finish the play?will be out-muscled at times vs. bigger WRs?will get flagged for downfield contact and needs to improve his discipline.

Player Overview

A two-star DB recruit, Natneal ?Nat? Berhe originally chose UTEP out of high school, but switched to San Diego State and redshirted in 2009.

He saw the field early in his career and it didn?t take long for him to establish himself as a starter, switching between both safety spots and starting a total of 41 games. Berhe became the first Aztec safety since 1999 to earn All-Conference honors in three straight seasons and leaves school among the all-time leaders in tackles.

He has limited size and looks more like a CB than imposing safety and doesn?t have the frame to get too much bigger. Berhe?s average speed will get him in trouble, but he plays active and tuned up with passionate instincts ? team-first attitude and doesn?t want to let his teammates down. He has the versatile experience that will appeal to next level coaches and should at-worst be a quality back-up ? solid third day option.

05/11/2014 - A closer look at the Giants' picks: Round 5/152 -- Nat Berhe, S, 5-10, 190, San Diego State...Intriguing prospect who played a hybrid linebacker/safety position in college that's similar to how the Giants used to deploy veteran safety Deon Grant. With Will Hill's future in doubt, Berhe could end up playing a bigger role right out of the gate with a strong training camp and preseason showing. - The Sports Xchange
