The drafting of Gio

Friday, May 02, 2014

As far as instant gratification, it turned out to be one of the more productive draft picks in the history of the Bengals. At No. 37 in the top of the second round last year, they selected North Carolina’s Giovani Bernard and he bolted off the board to a club-record 56 catches by a running back while averaging 4.1 yards per 170 scintillating carries and earning a berth as a NFL Rookie of the Year finalist.
