New Chiefs Safeties Eric Berry And Kendrick Lewis Are Linked

The Chiefs drafted two safeties in the 2010 NFL draft. One, Eric Berry, comes with high expectations and arguably the most talent of any player in the draft. The other, Kendrick Lewis, comes with little fanfare due partially to a slow forty yard dash time in pre-draft workouts.

We've already learned a little bit about Berry. So what does Lewis do well?

"I'm a small player," Lewis said this afternoon. "Real physical player. I love to hit and make plays on the ball."

Lewis and Berry are a good complement to each other and will be linked during their tenure in Kansas City.

"At the combine," he said, "me and Eric talked a lot. We played against each other and we talked a lot. Us being here together, it's helping us bond knowing we're going to be together on the same side playing with each other."

Lewis is from Ole Miss -- one of four Chiefs from SEC schools. In fact, Lewis' teammate and former roommate Dexter McCluster is on the other side of the ball. We know how Chiefs GM Scott Pioli feels about the SEC.

"Those guys played in the SEC with me so you know what type of talent they have," he said. "They're hard-working, talented guys.

"It's a wonderful feeling."
