Knowshon Moreno is one of the better running back prospects in the 2009 NFL Draft. The former Georgia Bulldog has proven to be a versatile and dynamic running back. Although Moreno didn't run as fast as expected at the NFL Combine, he is nonetheless one of the elite players available this year. Many people see Moreno as a natural fit in San Diego, as he'd be given the opportunity to learn from one of the game's best in Ladainain Tomlinson. Moreno would also provide the versatility that head coach Norv Turner covets in running backs. While there are a number of Chargers fans who would love for Moreno to don lightning bolts on Sundays, how does Knowshon Moreno himself feel about the idea of apprenticing under Tomlinson in San Diego?
"It would be a pleasure to learn from him. He's been there for a few years now. Just to be under his wing, so to speak, and learn what he knows. And also from Sproles, who's there now. That'd be really great. I'd find out what my role would be on the team and we'll see what happens after that."
