2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Knowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia

Moreno exploded onto the college football scene during his freshman season at Georgia in 2007. Invoking memories of legendary Bulldog Herschel Walker, Moreno carried 248 times for 1334 and 14 touchdowns in his first campaign in Athens. Showing skill in the passing attack as well, Moreno caught 20 passes out of the backfield for 253 more yards. He had a good season as a third-year sophomore in 2008, but it was a disappointing one for Georgia and therefore for Moreno as well. He did, however, rack up 1400 yards on the ground and 16 touchdowns. Moreno is naturally blessed with a nice blend of size and speed, but it is his athleticism, vision, and ability to hit the hole that sets him apart as arguably the best running back in this year's draft class. In one of the few instances in which Moreno did not see a place to go against Central Michigan earlier this season, he simply jumped completely over a helpless defender and continued on down the field. Even after the initial hit, Moreno often can get an extra yard or two with relative ease and rarely goes down before getting gang-tackled. His 40 times in the 4.6 area at both the combine and UGA's pro day were a bit disappointing and will most likely keep him out of the Top 10. An All-American on the field, Moreno has never been anything other than a strong example off the field as well. Look for him to go off the board near fellow RB Chris Wells somewhere around 15th or 20th in the upcoming draft.
