AFC North Draft Tournament: Josh Gordon vs. Giovani Bernard

The AFC North Draft Tournament continues with the second round picks. Jarvis Jones crushed Barkevious Mingo and Tyler Eifert defeated Matt Elam. Now, Giovani Bernard and Josh Gordon square off.

The first rounds of the AFC North Draft Tournament weren't even really competitive. That's the mark of a great tournament. We already know the results. Ahem.

Jarvis Jones put a thorough beatdown on Browns outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo, and Cincinnati's Tyler Eifert convincingly defeated Baltimore's Matt Elam to advance to the next round.

They will await the winner of the second round, which has a slight variation to it.

Cleveland chose wide receiver Josh Gordon in the 2012 Supplemental Draft, and while he counts as a supplemental pick, not the Browns' second round pick in 2013, we're going to pit him against Cincinnati's pick, running back Giovani Bernard.

Gordon showed something no Browns receiver has in several years; the ability to make plays. And he did all of this with Brandon Weeden as his quarterback and Brad Childress as his offensive coordinator.

Bernard was the first running back taken in the 2013 Draft - the first in several decades in which a running back was not selected in the first round. He has the look of a specialty back with the ability to contribute on special teams. Perhaps the Bengals see him as the kind of runner they need to go behind what should be one of the better offensive lines in the game this season.

Gordon has the unfair advantage of getting a year to show his value while Bernard is unproven, but thems the breaks sometimes.

Steelers' second round pick Le'Veon Bell will go against Baltimore's Arthur Brown in what looks like the marquee match-up of this tournament.

So let's put it to a vote. Which team got more value with their second round pick, Cincinnati with Bernard or Cleveland with Gordon?

Results

Jones over Mingo
