Bengals Draft Giovani Bernard

With the the 37th overall pick, the Cincinnati Bengals selected the running back from North Carolina, Giovani Bernard.

A lot of fans were expecting the Bengals to take Alabama’s running back Eddie Lacy, that was not the case. But don’t get upset, Bernard is a fantastic running back.

Last season Gio ran for 1228 yards on 184 carries and punched in 12 touchdowns. He also had 47 receptions, good for 490 yards and five touchdowns. He can help with the running game without question, he’ll compete with Green-Ellis for the starting spot. He also will help with the receiving game, as he is a great receiving running back.
