Knowshon Moreno‘s time as a Georgia Bulldog is over. Moreno leaves UGA as one of the best running backs in Dawg history and a top NFL prospect. It’s now time to shift this website’s focus to his potential as an NFL athlete. We all know he has potential to be very special at the next level. He wouldn’t have come out early if he didn’t think so himself.
Below are the latest mock drafts and the positions they rank Knowshon. Over the next few weeks/months we’ll analyze this.
Draft Countdown – #21 – Arizona Cardinals
New NFL Draft – #12 – Denver Broncos
Walter Football – #19 – Tampa Bay Bucs
Draft King – #17 – New York Jets
As you can see, most of the mocks have him in the mid 1st round. Knowshon Moreno will either be the 1st or second running back taken… his only other competition is Chris ‘Beanie’ Wells. there are a lot of teams that are in need of a RB. Denver comes to mind, but I doub’t they’d use the 12th pick on him.

It’s official now. Knowshon Moreno has declared himself eligible for the 2009 NFL Draft in April. Moreno has been projected to be drafted in the first round in every single mock draft I’ve looked at. Really there is no surprise he is headed to the NFL.
I’ve always pushed for athletes to make the jump to the NFL if they’re first round material. You just never know when an injury might end your entire career. Take the guaranteed money while you can. College will always be there if you want to go back and finish the 20 hours you need for a degree. Players only have so many earning years their bodies can handle.
Knowshon Moreno may go down as the second best running back Georgia has ever had, Herschel Walker being number 1. The AJC put together a cool timeline of all the major points in Knowshon’s career over the last two year. Check it out.
As for this fan site, just because Knowshon won’t be playing for Georgia doesn’t mean we’re going away. As soon as he’s drafted, we’ll revamp with a new design reflecting his new team colors.

I know the Capital One Bowl was a New Years Day Bowl game, and today is January 6th, but I took some days off from the internet world over the holidays and am just now getting in the swing of things.
I imagine all you Dawg fans saw the Capital One Bowl. With a little help from Knowshon Moreno, the Georgia Bulldogs were able to beat the Michigan State Spartans 24-12. Knowshon finished the game with 23 carries for only 62 yards, but he had 6 receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown. The Spartans were determined to stop the run, what they didn’t count on was Knowshon showing his mad receiving skills.
Check out the touchdown at the end of this highlight film. Knowshon grabs a 21 yard pass from Stafford to seal the victory.
Following the game, Knowshon directed the UGA Redcoat Band during their victory song.
