Bernard, a rookie out of North Carolina, was selected in the second round of the NFL draft. Lightning-fast and elusive, he figures to step right in and form a two-headed backfield monster with incumbent starter
BenJarvus Green-Ellis. While he's not expected to unseat the Law Firm atop the depth chart, Bernard should see more than his share of opportunities as a third-down option and in passing downs. A skilled receiver, he recorded a combined 92 catches, 852 receiving yards and found the end zone six times as a pass catcher in his two seasons with the Tar Heels. Bernard is also effective on special teams, returning two punts for touchdowns. A legitimate middle- to late-round selection in all seasonal drafts with much more value in dynasty leagues, Bernard could also be a flex starter in all standard formats.
