Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno Listed As A Fourth-Teamer

If Knowshon Moreno is to make the Broncos roster, he'll have to climb up the depth chart. Nine months removed from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, Moreno was listed on the fourth team at running back, behind Willis McGahee, Lance Ball and third-round pick Ronnie Hillman, who has missed time with a hamstring injury. With Moreno down on the depth chart -- which was released by the Broncos on Monday morning -- DE Robert Ayers stands as the only member of the Broncos' 2009 10-man draft class on the two-deep and fellow 2009 pick David Bruton is on the third team at strong safety; the other seven picks are no longer with the club, exacerbating the issue is that five of the 10 picks in 2009 came in the first two rounds. Moreno's descent is also significant in light of where other players who haven't practiced for various reasons sit. At strong safety, Quinton Carter is listed as the starter, even though he hasn't practiced since July 27 and will miss at least the next two weeks following knee surgery, at right tackle, Orlando Franklin is the first-teamer, even though he hasn't practiced fully since suffering a concussion July 28.

If I'm not mistaken that was McDaniel's first draft and it wasn't just a bad draft it was terrible cause if you try to remember that was the year he got rid of Cutler and Marshall.

I remember that year wanting the eagles to get Moreno cause he was suppose to be Westbrook like, now I'm glad we didn't get him cause we got the best RB of that years draft in McCoy

Turrible. I'm shocked Moreno hasn't been more successful. Very disappointing.

I wanted the Browns to draft McCoy that year. LeSean, that is.
