Vols Get 2 Picks in First Round of NFL Draft

Rarely have Safeties gone in the Top 5 of the Draft, but Tennessee's Eric Berry is a rare breed indeed.

  Berry is taken with the Number 5 Pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL Draft

The 2-Time All-American has 14-career interceptions.

He set an S.E.C. Record with 494 yards on returns after pickoffs.

The 5'11", 211 pounder can play either Safety or Corner, and is Big Time hitter and a sure tackler.

The Jim Thorpe Award Winner as the Nations' Best Defensive Back, says he's now ready to tackle the NFL

And toward the End of the First Round, former Memphis East High Star Dan Williams gets HIS chance to be an Instant Millionaire.

  He goes as the 26th Overall pick to the Arizona Cardinals.

Williams, who led all S.E.C. Defensive Linemen In tackles with 70..also had 9-Tackles for losses.

At 6'2" and 236 pounds, Williams is the prototype noseguard, able to clog up the middle, but with speed enough to chase down a Tailback or Quarterback.
