Moreno is average at best as a RB...good receiver out of the backfield though.
Hillman was marginal last year but brings some speed and should get better this year.
I'd rather cut Moreno and pair a rookie like Lacy, Bell, or Michael with McGahee. Willis in a number two role will be better than Willis in a number one role, like he's had to play the last few years.
I know this is a CRAZY thought... but given that he got to under 200lbs.... has anyone ever considered that Moreno might be a better WR than HB?
I feel like his natural cut-up weight is around 5'11", 195. And his 10-yard split was less than impressive, although he has the straight-line speed.
He could be a good down field blocker, too.
