Rigotz Posted January 29 Share Posted January 29 Yes, I know he looked terrible this season in limited play. 3rd rounder in a potential Super Bowl year. We needed OL and WR badly. Why did we draft him? The Bills play a base 4-2-5 defense… 4 down linemen, two linebackers, 5 DBs including a Nickel (Taron) who acts as a linebacker at times. Was Bernard intended as insurance against a Taron or Edmunds injury? Was he intended to be used as a core special teamer and traditional OLB in 4-3 looks? I didn’t understand this pick at the time and still don’t … unless it was always the plan to groom him to replace Edmunds… which also seems odd in a SB year. So… what do you think was the ideal outcome Beane had in mind? Try to keep the snarky/defeatist answers to a minimum. 7 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
