Strengths: Highly talented running back with every tool in the book ... Has a second gear and is certainly a game-breaking back ... Powerful runner with outstanding trucking ability ... Never gives up and leaves all of his effort on the gridiron ... Elite cutting ability and can cut upfield on a dime ... Has a variety of open field moves to shake defenders (stiff arm, spin, juke hurdle) ... Elite receiver out of the backfield who rarely drops passes ... Distinguished pass blocker ... Minimal injury history with not many miles on his tires ... Solid character and great leader ... Comes from a school with a history of producing a few elite backs: Herschel Walker , Garrison Hearst, Terrell Davis.
Weaknesses: Physical running style could lead to a shortened NFL career if he gets too many carries early on ... Preferably, you want running backs above 210 pounds, but this is being quite picky.
Summary: Moreno has earned my 5-star, elite grade because he is an every-down back with an elite talent level, whom I would consider as being a better prospect than Adrian Peterson coming out of college. If some team gets Moreno in the mid-first round or later, they are getting a mega steal. I really have no idea why Moreno is so underrated.
Player Comparison: Marion Barber III. Barber is an outstanding all-around back who has few weaknesses. He can block, catch the football, get the tough short yards and break off for bigger runs.
