In an interview with the website Draft Diamonds, San Diego State safety Nat Berhe said the Pittsburgh Steelers were one of three teams that he met with back in February at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine.
Berhe, a first-team All-Mountain West pick in 2013 after leading his team in tackles (99), is considered by many to be a day-three draft prospect that could potentially go undrafted.
At the combine, Berhe measured in at 5’10″ and weighed 193 pounds. He posted a 40-yard dash time of 4.71 seconds to go along with a 35.5 inch vertical jump and 15 reps on the bench.
Berhe is reportedly a high-character kid with good football instincts and a strong motor. He is a bit undersized, however, and has short arms. He likes contact and said as much in his recent interview when asked about his strengths
I’m not afraid to tackle, I respect my peers more than anything else but I’m one of the few guys who will come downhill and hit you in the mouth. If you watch the Hawaii game I was going head to head with Joey Iosefa whose about 240 lbs. If you put that tape on you will instantly see what separates me from the rest. Also I can recognize a play pretty quickly, that’s just a result of me watching a ton of film.
Based on the pre draft visitors the Steelers have had in over the course of the last several weeks, they certainly seem poised to add a strong safety type at some point during the draft. Berhe could be a name to watch for on day three and could quite possibly be an undrafted free agent prospect if not selected.
