Georgia's Stafford, Moreno Enter 2009 NFL Draft
Jan. 7, 2009
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno are leaving Georgia for the NFL draft.
Stafford, a junior, returned to campus from his family's home in Dallas on Wednesday to make the announcement. Moreno, a third-year sophomore, made the trip from Belford, N.J.
Georgia coach Mark Richt joined the two at a news conference.
Stafford and Oklahoma's Sam Bradford may be the two top quarterbacks in the draft, assuming Bradford also declares early. Detroit has the No. 1 pick and could use a quarterback.
Moreno had 1,400 yards rushing with 16 touchdowns this season to join Herschel Walker as the only players in school history with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons.
