Knowshon Moreno Was The Perfect Choice for the Denver Broncos

GWhen I woke up this morning, the first thought that came to my mind was the draft. More importantly, to myself, was who the Broncos would take.

I waited in anticipation, hoping for LSU star, Tyson Jackson, to be our first overall selection. That dream faded after the third pick to the Chiefs. To be honest, I had no idea who McDaniels had in mind for the 12th overall pick.

When Knowshon Moreno's name was called, I wasn't sure what to think of the draft pick. My mind had been set for months on the fact that Denver's defense needed all the help that it could get.

I couldn't figure out why McDaniels was adding on yet another running back to our current 5, including former Arkansas Razorback, fullback, Peyton Hillis.

After considering it for a while, it became very clear that Josh McDaniels had made the right decision, and knew exactly what he was doing.

I decided to do some research on our newly added running back, I was very happy with the results.

In Moreno's entire career at Georgia, he ran for 2,736 yards, and had 30 touchdowns overall. Let me remind you that this is in 2 seasons alone.

Moreno, and the Georgia Bulldogs, also has a victory last year in the Capital One Bowl game where he scored a touchdown, had 125 yards, rushing and receiving, and 6 receptions.

I can only imagine what he'll do for the new-look, Denver Broncos.

At the end of the day, I was satisfied in Denver's selections. They got a good defensive end, a vastly underrated safety, a dominant cornerback, and a starting running back for the future.

Out of all Denver's draft picks, I was pleased with Knowshon Moreno the most. He is a great running back that will be a game-changer in 2009.
