In Pioli’s second draft, the Chiefs selected Eric Berry with the fifth overall pick. Berry led all safeties at the 2010 NFL Combine with a 43.0-inch vertical jump. Berry’s hops ranked as the third-best that year of any player regardless of position.
Last year, the Chiefs selected Pittsburgh wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin in the back-end of the first round. Baldwin posted a 42.0-inch vertical jump at the Combine, best at his position and second-best overall.
Baldwin, Berry and Washington couldn’t just sky. They could leap as well.
