Atlanta GM Thomas Dimitroff calls the safety-at-the-top-of-the-draft debate a conundrum. "It's been on my mind a lot lately," he said, "and I realize I'm speaking out of both sides of my mouth here, but Berry's a really good player. It's been on my mind quite a bit recently. You want the good hitter with hip movement, able to turn and run, but then reality sets in. I was talking to [Kansas City GM] Scott Pioli about Berry, and I said, 'Scott, this guy's your pick.' And he said, 'You know how I feel about safeties that early.' And I understand.''
Smokescreen? Irrelevant, since Pioli could make an exception if Berry is a good enough prospect?
I dunno, but it seems to fall in line with what a lot of people are thinking about KC's pick, and there was a STRONG pre-draft read on what KC was going to do last year when they picked Tyson Jackson. This is going to be a very interesting team to watch as we inch closer to the draft. As much as KC fans don't want to see it happen, I would not be surprised to see a tackle, a trade down or a pick out of left field.
