Nat Berhe Is Eritrea’s First NFL Player
You may or may not be able to tell a man by his tweets, but in Nat Berhe’s case, his emotions are easy to read. He shot two off, right after he was taken by the Giants in the fifth round of the NFL Draft, and they were very revealing.

Not long after, he offered a glimpse into his state of mind: “I’m going to give everything I got to the Giants and everybody who passed on me … I’m coming.”
The Giants hope Berhe gives them the same performance he gave San Diego State, but with a 5-foot-10, 198 lb frame he looks more like a cornerback than a safety.
