As Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis scouted North Carolina’s Pro Day on Tuesday, Rob Rang of CBSSports.com reported that Lewis showed a noticeable interest in running back Giovanni Bernard:
Running back Giovani Bernard may have been the biggest name of UNC’s flashy skill-position athletes, but the only measured drill he performed Wednesday was in the bench press. He was quite impressive in this test, however, as the 5-8 1/2, 204-pounder lifted the bar 19 times. Bernard also showed superb quickness and burst during his positional drills. According to the source, the Bengals’ Lewis seemed to be particularly interested in Bernard’s workout.
