From 2013 to 2020, Giovani Bernard was a great situational running back on the Cincinnati Bengals roster. Drafted in 2013 out of the University of North Carolina, he had a nice rookie season, showing great potential out of the backfield and in the passing game.

In 2014, Cincinnati drafted Jeremy Hill from LSU; a solid power back who complimented Bernard’s smaller and quicker game.
