Tennessee’s Eric Berry thinks he’s draft’s best

INDIANAPOLIS — Tennessee safety Eric Berry is predicted to go in the top five picks in April’s NFL Draft, but he wants more. He wants to be No. 1.

“I want to come here and leave no doubt,” he said Sunday at the scouting combine. “My whole goal coming into the combine is to remove the percentage of doubt in their minds I’m not good enough to be No. 1.

“I feel like I’m the best player in the draft.”

Unlike some of the quarterbacks, who chose not to throw, Berry will do all the drills this week.

“It’s the combine. It’s not a fashion show,” he said.
