Player Highlight: Giovani Bernard, North Carolina
This year's running-back class doesn't feature a prospect worthy of a first-round pick. However, there are a handful of players like Bernard who have the ability to make an immediate impact.
Bernard is a shifty runner who does a great job picking his way through traffic. His commitment to keeping his pads low helps him pick up yards after initial contact. It also gives him the balance needed to make quick and seamless cuts.
The only question about him is his limited top-end speed. Bernard isn't the type of running back who'll consistently outrun defensive angles. However, his vision and instinctual running style allow him to overcome his lack of elite speed.
