Moreno had been compared to the likes of San Diego Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson, but those parallels will likely come to an end given his lack of speed. Even with a less than stellar workout, there's virtually no chance Moreno will fall to the Cardinals at pick No. 31.
Meanwhile, Ohio St RB Chris Wells' 40-yard dash was also somewhat lackluster. Wells managed a time of 4.59 and put up 25 reps in the bench press. In addition, he tied for the lead with a 10-foot-8 leap in the broad jump. Like Moreno, Wells' inability to display better speed could cost him on draft day.
Wells certainly didn't boost his draft status but it didn't take a severe hit either. It's unlikely he'll be on the board late in round one but Arizona would be forced to take a hard look if he's available.
Given his uneventful performance there's a good chance Greene will be available late in round two or possibly into the third round. Although he's not a receiving threat out of the backfield, his powerful running style would fit the mentality of coach Ken Whisenhunt.
One player who didn't disappoint was RB Donald Brown of Connecticut. Brown raced to a 4.51 40-yard dash and led all running backs in two other categories. He topped the charts in the vertical jump (41.5 inches) and 60-yard shuttle (11.30). The quickness Brown displayed will catch the attention of several NFL teams.
Brown was considered a second-round prospect coming in but he'll keep rising with another tremendous outing at his Pro Day. Arizona GM Rod Graves could be tempted in the first round if Brown continues to perform at a high level.
RB Cedric Peerman of Virginia was one of Saturday's workout warriors, improving his draft stock in the process. His 40-yard dash time of 4.45 led the group of running backs. Furthermore, he finished second in bench press reps (27) and the vertical jump (40 inches).
Boise St RB Ian Johnson also put forth a solid effort with a 4.46 40-yard dash while racking up 26 reps in the bench press. Both Peerman and Johnson are still mid-round prospects and could be a nice bargain at that point in the draft.
