Knowshon MorenoHt/Wt: 5-11/207 lbs
Knowshon Moreno's Player ProfileAs a redshirted freshman in 2007 he earned the SEC Freshman of the Year after running for 1,334 yards and 14 touchdowns. Moreno followed that up with gaining 1,400 yards on 250 carries with 16 touchdowns. He also caught 33 passes for 392 yards and 2 TDs. Will battle ‘Beanie’ Wells for the top running back taken in the 2009 draft.
Moreno has excellent vision coming out the backfield, using his quickness to get through holes. Has the breakaway speed, and the ability to make a big run every time he touches the ball. He is also a good receiver out of the backfield, and isn’t afraid to throw a block when need be. Doesn’t give up on a play, often fighting for extra yards.
One aspect that will affect Knowshon in the NFL is his size. At 5’11 and below 210 pounds, he is on the smaller side. The constant pounding that he will incur in the NFL may take a toll on him.
