Eagles beat reporter Geoff Mosher notes that Berry will also oversee the analytics department, as we all know Howie Roseman is a big fan of marrying analytics and football.

The former Harvard graduate was a four-year starter as a cornerback. After college, Berry got his start with the Indianapolis Colts as a scouting assistant back in 2009, making his way to a pro scout in 2011. Berry was then promoted as pro scouting coordinator for the Colts the following year.
Berry was originally brought to the Cleveland Browns by Sashi Brown, who hired Berry as the vice president of player personnel and he ended up staying with the Browns under new General Manager John Dorsey. During the offseason, Berry had other suitors for his services, but let’s chalk it up a win for now since he chose the Eagles as his landing spot.
