NFL Draft 2009 Round 1 #12- Denver Broncos- RB Knowshon Moreno

The first running back taken in this year’s draft. ESPN’s announcers sound puzzled by Denver’s pick here.

ESPN writes- We place a high value on competitiveness when we evaluate running backs and Moreno is clearly the most determined runner in this class. He runs with an attitude and can run over or make defenders miss when he gets into the open field. Although Moreno ran a disappointing 40 time (4.62) at the combine he has outstanding quickness and he reaches his top-end speed in a flash. We also I believe that he’s an underrated receiver, making him a three-down back.
