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.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
