    11.34 is not very good.

    Not thrilled at all. That said, there are tons of good RB’s. Small and shitty schools have good RB’s all the time.

    Not much production from this guy tho. Only 800+ yards last season. He seems like he might be serviceable, but like Sonics said, not much upside.

    Yeah, this guy did not do much. Compare his film to other recent 3 star RBs, Newton and Sunday. Both have way better film than this guy. Berry does have a better top gear though. I guess. I don't know anymore...
    This guy definitely has more juice than either of those 2.
    Go to bed.

    Jeebus fetters. That's embarrassing.

    It makes me think, though. You could take 4-5 good looking dudes, roll them all into one mass, and have it come out looking like Fetters. So maybe it's not so ridiculous looking from that point of view.
    I’ve always thought Fetters was a mix of Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy, and Ralphie May.
    INSTANT REAX, re: Chris Fetters to DM... another one in the stable for KG as the Doogs continue to move into Whitman. BIG back, shades of Pitt, Gosling, Hardy, Eklund and Ralphie May all rolled into one powerful back. Aggressive downhill condescender w/A LARGE CHOCOLATE shake.

    He's not a division 1 athlete so I don't give a fuck what his time is. Are you related to BrentFS by chance?
    I care.

    I'm not related to anyone.

    If he's got "violence in his wiggle" then he's alright with me.

    People forget that Big Ern knows a little about the game. Being under center was his specialty.

    @rustysavage just gets it.

    Analysis from Gabe Brooks, who the Huffman and Angulo of Texas.



    Evaluation notes: Berry is a good, solid back with the requisite size and a tough-minded approach to the position. He's shown big-play ability in his penchant for breaking tackles at the first level and using above average top-end play speed in the open field.

    Berry played his junior season in the 6-foot, 190- to 195-pound neighborhood, but has emphasized the weight room this offseason in an effort to run harder and stronger more consistently. He now weighs in the 210-pound range to give him college-ready size at the position.

    Berry already ran pretty hard as is, but that added mass should help him in the box and when finishing runs at the second level. One of the more encouraging elements of his game is his foot quickness in the hole, where he shows the ability to make the first defender miss to extend runs.

    There's a violence to Berry's gait that produces some wasted motion and body control inconsistency, but coincidentally, he runs with good enough balance to regularly break tackles and maintain his footing. His production was solid in 2019, but we hope to see more yardage and a higher per carry average this fall.

    Berry's most recent 100-meter time of 11.34 seconds is adequate, but he can improve his top-end speed. He has relatively limited experience as a pass-catcher, so that will be one area to continue his work as he transitions to the next level.

    Overall, Berry is a good pickup for Washington. He's a hard-nosed runner with some open-field juice who probably plays a bit faster than his track numbers suggest. He comes from a traditionally talent-laden East Texas program that has produced numerous FBS players, including NFL talent such as Keke Coutee, Dez Bryant, Jorvorskie Lane, and Don Muhlbach, among others. He will arrive at Washington having faced strong competition relative to the high school level in practices and games.

    This is a pretty solid analysis

    I think he falls in the category of Newton and Sunday ... but I liked both of their Junior films better than Berry.

    I don't know if I agree with the comment that he shows the ability to make guys miss ... I saw him go down often on first contact (often with forward lean) and most of his runs being much more straight line.

    He strikes me as your typical Texas HS RB that is productive in college but will never be confused as an elite difference maker. These are the kind of guys that if you have to give them 15-20 carries a game from time to time they can do well for you. But they aren't the guys that are going to be the game breakers. For as much shit as Ahmed was given at times for his lack of solid RB skills, he had the ability to make a big play (i.e. TD run vs SC) ... don't see that from Berry
