Knowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia
The 2009 NFL draft does not feature a lot of big name running backs, if you believe that means their is not a lot of talent you would be incorrect. This years Running Backs if put into the right situation can certainly make a lot of noise. I'll start with a running back I think has potential to really help a team this year, Knowshon Moreno. Georgia was pre-season number 1 in the polls, and for good reason, they had Stafford at QB and Moreno at RB. They did not finish the season on top but wire to wire champs are rare these days. Knowshon's greatest skill is his versatility, he can catch the ball out of the backfield and is a proven tough runner. With 25 reps in the bench press he has the strength to be a third and short back already. The Broncos took Moreno in the first round, I think that this is a very good spot for Knowshon. The Broncos are notorious for making running backs better, and with Cutler gone their will be a lot of running in Denver this year. Overall this is a great opportunity for Moreno and I think he will be able to capitalize.
