Default Thoughts on Moreno?

Ive been reading a couple people on other boards who keep proclaiming that we wasted the 12th pick on moreno. I think he is a stud that is only going to get better.

With Buck out, knowshon was responsible for many diffrent roles in our offense. Blocking, recieving, running knowshon had a full plate vs a very good run stuffing defense. Thats alot of pressure for a ROOKIE. I think this kid is going to get better and better, he just needs to keep focus with those fumbles. Great pick up in the draft IMO

Your thoughts?

I think he's a rookie with promise, and he's showing both - sometimes one more than the other.

Buck is the better talent, IMO. Need both on the field though

Playing very well. Over 100 yards of total offense again. He needs to hold on to the damn ball, though.

I think he's so very close to having a monster, break out game, hell he's had over 100 yards from scrimmage in the last two games, just under that in games 2 and 3.

He's going to be a great weapon in this offense.

Love the way he runs the ball, but he definitely puts it on the ground too much for my liking. Hopefully, he figures out something to deal with that, because I'm sure people are going to be hacking away all the time and trying to force a fumble first and foremost every time he runs the ball.

A tremendous run in OT to get us better field position. I dont care who you are, running directly into wilfork is not going to get you alot of yards

On draft day, I was pretty upset when GB selected BJ Raji. Now, I am very happy GB selected BJ Raji.

Moreno and Ayers are looking exceptional and improving weekly.

Fumbles too damn much. On our last drive/OT I was hoping they would just put Hillis or Lamont in...

If he stops fumbling he could be insane.

He looks good but, not reach great until we beef up inside OL positions.

I love the kid, possibly the most passionate on the team, after Dawkins. Always runs hard and makes great cuts. Also people already respect his receiving ability, you could see the Pats freak out when they split him out wide, I know it made them use at least one time out.

IMO, the only thing he needs to work on is holding on to the ball. Once he does that, he will be even more of a beast. Can't blame him for not getting those short yardage situations when our oline is getting destroyd at the line of scrimmage. I love the pick.

The only people who should be upset about that pick are Charger fans.

Moreno is a stud who does everything you need of a RB, he is a team player and he fights for it all. There is nothing not to like about this guy, he can be a focal point of the offense for years to come, running behind guys like Kuper and Clady and having Royal and Marshall keeping the pressure off him.

I trust the experts. Charlie Casserly and Mike Mayock who i really respect felt Moreno was the best player available, and I think we hit on both Ayers and Moreno. Plus we kept SD from drafting Moreno who I think may have looked long and hard at him.

I know what you are saying.. I think that can be said about most nfl RB's, those guys take a beating.

I'm happy with the pick. He's still a rook and not at the level of Buck yet... But I like him. Much upside in this kid.

Dude runs confidently but I don't think he's anywhere near his full talent/potential. He's learning that he can play at this speed, and he's learning that holding the ball like he did at UGA will not work in the NFL. Once he gets that down, he will then dominate, IMO, because then he can work solely on reading blocks, which Bobby Turner will teach him better than anyone.

I'm trying to think of who he reminds me of...maybe Edgerrin James or Chris Johnson...

I would already declare him a stud if not for the ball security issue. I'm very happy with everything else...

At this stage I like Buckhalter better, but am hoping Moreno will fourish into the Back we paid for-being a first round pick I guess I expected someone more along the lines of TD (and he hasn't shown me that yet)-

Moreno just needs to stay healthy and protect the ball. If he does those two things it's all good...
