The Kansas City Star looks at the busy rookie season of safety Eric Berry. The paper reports he played every defensive snap in 2010. That is quite an accomplishment for a rookie and quite a show of trust by the team.

The newspaper reasons that Berry could suffer from playing so many snaps. But Kansas City clearly thinks Berry, the No. 5 overall pick in the 2010 draft, is a special player, and it will expect him to continue to play a major role moving forward.
