Notes:
2009: Selected by Denver in 1st round (12th overall) of the NFL Draft; signed August 7, to a 5-year, $23 million contract...

DRAFT ANALYSIS - Second Team All-American in 2008...First Team All-SEC in both 2007 and 2008...Decided to enter this draft after only two collegiate seasons and is considered by many to be the top running back prospect available...A phenomenal athlete who lands on highlight reels regularly with his tremendous leaping ability and ankle-breaking moves...Ran for 2,734 yards and 30 touchdowns in his two seasons with the Bulldogs and showed tremendous ability as a receiver as well...Is a well-built athlete who has proven capable of taking a hit...Can run both inside and outside effectively...Routinely breaks arm tackles...A highly competitive tailback who wants to be the one to make big plays in pressure situations...Is a willing and capable blocker...There is very little not to like about Moreno's game, as he is one of the most complete players at any position in this draft.
