Height Weight 40 Time
ATHLETIC ABILITY SECTION GRADE: 7.0
Q.A.B 7.0

Quick Feet 7.0

C.O.D 7.0

Flexibility 6.5

Coordination 7.0

Moreno is a very good athlete who has tremendous quickness. His agility and balance help him to change direction quickly in the hole or in the open field. Moreno's athletic ability helps him to make people miss and break the big play. Moreno shows good body control slicing through the defense and adjusting to receiving the ball. He has good coordination that helps him to bounce off tackles and Moreno is typically always falling forward.
COMPETITIVENESS SECTION GRADE: 7.0
Toughness 7.0

Clutch Play 7.0

Production 6.5

Consistency 6.0

Team Player 7.0

Pride/Quit 7.0

Moreno is a fierce competitor who runs hard every time he touches the ball. He has had good production in his first 2 years carrying the ball for the Bulldogs having almost identical numbers in 07 and 08. Moreno is a consistent back and you know you're going to get maximum effort on every play. He is a great team player who does what the coaching staff asks of him, he needed to improve his receiving skills, so he did. Moreno has strong pride and consistently plays to the whistle and will take on anyone in pass pro situations.
MENTAL ALERTNESS SECTION GRADE: 6.5
Learn/Retain 6.5

Inst/Reaction 7.0

Concentration 6.5

Moreno has great football instincts. He does a good job of recognizing the defense and adjusting accordingly whether it is in a pass route, running the ball, or pass pro. Moreno has a good feel for finding the hole and knows when to bounce it outside. Moreno almost never makes mental errors.
STRENGTH/EXPLOSION SECTION GRADE: 6.5
Body Type 6.0

Durability 6.0

Explosion 6.5

Play Strength 6.5

Moreno has smaller body than most NFL teams would like to see. His height is good but he needs some bulking up on his weight to endure a 16 game NFL season. With his size and lack of a lot of carries over the last 2 seasons I would be concerned about his durability as an every down back in a long NFL season. However, Moreno plays much stronger than his size shows; compared to a comparable sized back in Ringer Moreno is a much stronger aggressive runner and blocker.

8.5 FUMBLE/ERRORS Great/doesn't make mental errors and hasn't fumbled in 2 years (498 carries) strong hands
STRONG POINTS WEAKNESSES
Moreno is a very competitive athlete. He plays like it is his last time playing every game. Moreno runs the ball to score on every play. He is an outstanding blocker who can hold his own against DL and LB. Very good quick feet that allows him to change directions quickly to make people miss. Moreno is a gifted athlete with a ton of football instincts. Moreno's only weakness is his lack of bulk and it is questionable whether or not he will be able to sustain a 16 game NFL season as a featured back. Other than that I don't see much weakness in his game.
SUMMARY
Moreno is an exceptional athlete who is very quick and can break the big play at anytime. I would compare Moreno to a Chris Johnson without the burner speed. He is a physical runner with great change of direction speed. Moreno's ability to pass pro gives him the opportunity to play and make an impact immediately on a team. He understands protection and picks up the blitz very well. Moreno's desire and competitiveness to score on every play helps him to run hard and through tackles. Moreno will be a star in the NFL, his ability to make plays makes him a great prospect.
