If you look at the properly set up drops, they have a pretty much the same shape as bullhorns when you're on the hoods but you also have multiple hand positions on the drops which helps on descents and when riding into the wind (plus gives you a better leverage on the brakes for finer control).
Look at the top of the bars, when you're on the hoods, it's almost the same as bullhorns.
