Great decision making and balance. High hopes for him.

As upset as I am about the entire Cutler fiasco, I'm even more excited by this kids potential...

Imagine what he could do on a screen with Dan Graham, and BMarsh blocking for him. One thing I saw on some of those screens was that his receivers gave him no help other than kind of getting in the way of the defenders for a second.

Agree with the op. Great balance, decision-making ability, and vision.

Very dangerous in open field and seems to have a nose for the goal line.

Georgia was one of the worst blocking teams at the second level I have ever seen... With the players we have locking up guys down field... WOW!

Man, that guy can cut.

Also, he threw for a TD! Hadn't seen that clip before.

Couldn't tell you. I was basing my comment on that clip.


Besides, we can just let Hillis handle the goal line duties.

Cant wait to see McDaniels find a way to utilize this kid's athleticism.

You get the feeling he expects to score on every play - even if he is playing from his own goal line.

And, he definitely doesn't fall down easily...

He's not a burner like Chris Johnson, but he will make a lot of defenders look pretty foolish with those cuts.

Moreno/Hillis/Buckhalter/Jordan

That's a sweet line-up, folks.

another thing i like, he isn't taking a lot of unnecessary contact. he fights for yardage, but he also knows how avoid taking big hits. he plays smart.

i have been waiting years to see Turner work his magic on an already elite RB. he made scrubs serviceable, now lets see what he can do with 1st round talent.

Moreno reminds me a little bit of Gale Sayers -- and also Charley Taylor, both sensational running backs who had the cut back ability.

With that ability -- you don't need a burner.

This should be fun to watch. Hopefully the new coach knows how to use this kid.

I think he had 30 or 31 touchdowns.

EDIT: He had 30 rushing TD's and 2 receiving TD's. And I guess he never fumbled in college. 553 touches with no fumbles is damn good, especially in the SEC http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player...layerId=189614
