“Berhe is a fluid, athletic and instinctive DB who's size limitations leave him susceptible to getting beat on the high-ball, but who could be a nice nickel piece for the Giants, considering his stride-for-stride coverage ability.”

Mike Mayock, NFL Network

“At San Diego State's pro day, Berhe ran the 40 in 4.55 and 4.56 seconds. He had a 35-inch vertical and 9-10 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.42 seconds and the three-cone in 7.32 seconds. He had 17 strength lifts.”

Dan Graziano,

“Another senior. Another team captain. Another strong statistical performer, with 94 tackles as a junior and 99 as a senior. This is the fifth round, so it's rare to find a starter here, and the Giants' recent draft history hasn't exactly turned up many gems in this range. But if what you're looking for here is roster depth that helps bolster your special teams while you work to develop a guy into something more, you could do worse than a guy like this one. He also happens to play a position at which 2013 fifth-rounder Cooper Taylor (who was also the No. 152 overall pick) is the only player under contract with the Giants beyond 2014.”
