Okay, Take Berry

I've been a vocal opponent of selecting Eric Berry. The idea of taking a safety so early was bizarre to me when we have positions of greater need that could be filled by guys on the board when we pick. This situation has, to a good degree, now changed. I would have selected an LT with the first pick, but Albert seems to be locked in since we've signed a C and are persuing Gards as we speak(read?).

ILB would appear to me to be the next best place to go, and Rolando McClain should be available. The problem here is that our best 2a pick is probably Spikes, an ILB. I could see DT Cody go here but I see us waiting for a guy like Troup later on. OLB would seem to be the next best option with the first pick as far as need is concerned. Sergio Kindle would be the selction if that route were taken but that is a huge reach for a guy who is another converted DE. Fielding two DE to LB converts in your line up essentially turns your 4-3 into a 5-2, negating the purpose of a 3-4 altogether. Now we're into territory where any pick would be a reach, except one: Mr. Berry.

It's either McClain - Cody or Berry - Spikes in my mind. (1 Berry 2. Spikes 3. Cody would be the steal of a lifetime is cody slipped back that far)

I'd be enthused with either combination, but the latter I find to be a better value.

So there it is, I half-ass endorse selecting Eric Berry at no.5

That said, I doubt Pioli does it.
