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.
Walter your inability to bet the Patriots all year with Brady on the team is inexplicable. Yes, since Brady came back from suspension, you bet the Patriots 0 times, even though they covered as decent and often huge favorites. Why? Why are you more afraid than Goodell is to show up at Foxborough to bet on a great team to beat inferior oponents by a large margin? You lost out on a lot of money. As for the Patriots defense who will be "overwhelmed" by Pittsburgh hahaha, the Patriots defense has stepped up when it needed to. Logan Ryan who is not even the best DB let alone CB on the team just had a dominant game covering one of the best wide receivers in the league. And you're going to say that Brady can't go stride for stride against Big Ben who, with his 0 TD performance last Sunday, once again proved that he has turned into an awful road playoff QB? You know what 0 TDs will win you in the AFC Championship game? I don't believe that betting on Pitt getting 6 points is a bad decision - seeing as I may do the same. But to predict the Patriots to straight up lose is laughable. The advantage they have on defense and coaching is pretty big and they may even be even offensively solely because Brady has been using Edelman more and more and Dion Lewis's return has shown to be very important.
