I'm not saying Berard is a stellar pick or anything, but he's a proven offensive specialist.
Right, I don't know why I said he was looking like a bust. He didn't develop a defensive game as fast as people would like, but still put up good numbers for his first 3 seasons.

After those 3 seasons, he got the eye injury and came back as a mediocre specialist.

I don't know what you mean about he and Campbell "having similar levels of ability," unless you mean they were on a similar career track until Berard's eye injury hit him right as he was rounding out his game (which I would agree with).
