The AFC West is going to see a power shift and it's going to start happening soon.

The Kansas City Chiefs made the steal of the NFL Draft by getting Eric Berry and it was K.C.'s best roster move since bringing in Joe Montana.

The safety is the quarterback of the defense; And this kid is going to be a star.

His position is the most highly underrated position on the football field. 

49ers fans remember Ronnie Lott covering from sideline to sideline; quite literally starting on one sideline and racing over to the complete opposite side of the field to knock balls out of the air.  

Having a player who can single handily eliminate all deep threats gives your defense the ability to cut down the field; attacking with the other ten guys in a very limited space.

A player like Eric Berry can turn any professional defense into a game changing force and Eric Berry is going to turn the tide of the AFC West.
