I had a Moto g2 and I installed stock rom again and OEM updated which caused a hard brick. If I had locked the bootloader, would it still be bricked?

I have a Moto g5 now and don't want to brick it. What causes a hard brick.??

Please read the threads , its the ota update updating bootloader when its unlocked therefore bootloader is erased . We don't have blank flash !
