It's easy to understand why people see similarities between Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard and Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice. Bernard is 5-foot-9 and 208 pounds, Rice is 5-foot-8 and 212 pounds. Both run with power and can make moves in space. As a rookie, Bernard averaged 4.1 yards per carry and 9.2 yards per reception, while Rice averaged 4.2 yards per carry and 8.3 yards per reception in his first year.
