Last season, the safety position was one of the stronger units for the New York Giants. Even with Stevie Brown going down with a torn ACL prior to the season starting, the Giants still got production out of the players they have. Antrel Rolle and Will Hill were one of the best tandems in the NFL. That didn’t stop the Giants from adding safeties this offseason, signing Quinton Demps and then drafting Nat Berhe in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Berhe fit the profile of everything the Giants were looking for in their draftees; he was a multiple year starter with outstanding football intelligence and character. He was a great leader at San Diego State, being named captain and producing exceptionally on the field stats wise. He recorded 96 and 99 tackles the last two seasons, an extremely high and productive number for a college player, let alone a safety. Some will say he was an overachiever in college, but there is a reason why he produced the way he did.
