Overview:

Gerry had a highly productive career at Nebraska, where he played in 50 games, he was a team captain, he had 273 tackles, 19.0 for loss, an impressive 13 interceptions, and 19 pass breakups, proving to be a ball hawk. He has good size, good speed, is good in coverage, is a sure fire tackler, and a hard hitting safety. He is also very experienced, and he is a defensive play maker.The only issue I see is that he was suspended from the Cornhuskers Bowl Game this past season for being ruled ineligibleÊby the school. With that said, I see Gerry being a day 3 pick, somewhere in the late rounds.
