At 6'3" and 215 pounds, Berger's best assets are his instincts and intelligence. This is a heady football player who plays with an intense focus, purpose and appears to prepare himself well throughout the week.
Berger does an excellent job of trusting his gut before the snap, quickly processes information and consistently makes proper reads. He is quick to react to plays, has surprisingly great athleticism and flashes excellent agility and quickness to scrape laterally to fill alleys.
He spends a good amount of time on the edges and flanks, but has the toughness to man the middle. Berger doesn't back down from blockers, as he has quick hands and good technique to shed. He displays solid speed to track runners across the box, can sift through trash and plays with an admirable motor.
Berger can crash off the edge as a blitzer on passing situations, has the toughness to fight through the A-gap to get to the quarterback and will give good effort when asked to cover tight ends. His vision, athletic ability and instincts also should help him be able to play in zone coverage.
