Bruce Feldman talks to Tony Villani, Eric Berry's trainer, about the combine and some of his clients past and preset. Here is a nugget on Berry:
What do you think NFL people will be most impressed with when they work Berry out?
He's gonna be explosive. He's gonna be fast. He's going to do his safety drills like a [cornerback]. I think they'll look him and say "This guy could be a 210-pound CB." Or he could be a 210-pound free safety. He could be a 210-pound strong safety. At Indy, they're going to say this guy is a DB in a safety's body.
The fastest laser [40-time] at Indy for a safety is 4.37 and the fastest hand-time ever was Chris Clemons from last year who ran a 4.33. Honestly, that's what we're going after. But he'll have to put it all together. The other safeties I trained who all ran fast and jumped high and did great at everything at Indy -- Sensabaugh, Clemons and Jason Allen -- not to knock them, but they don't have the hips and the change of direction that Eric Berry does.
He also talks about training Jason Allen and Jerod Mayo. He tells a story about Justin Gatlin, who was the fastest man in the world at the time, and how he was actually slower at 40 yards than Mayo was. Of course at 100 meters, it wouldn't have been close.
