    Bronco Running Back Depth Chart

    the Depth chart says:

    1) Montee Ball
    2) Ronnie Hillman
    3) CJ Anderson
    4) Juwan Thompson

    Place these RBs in order from most yards receiving and rushing to least yards receiving and rushing for the season.

    Here's Mine:

    Hillman
    Ball
    Anderson
    Thompson

    Ball
    Anderson
    Thompson
    Hillman

    I think Hillman continues to disappoint and ends up, like last year, inactive for many of the games.

    Ball
    Thompson
    Anderson
    Hillman

    I have a feeling Thompson will be the odd man out at the start of the year because the others have the senority but I think by the end of the year he may be our #2 RB.

    I have a feeling Hillman will get his shots early and not take advantage of them and like Geo said probably sit inactive.

    Hopefully I am wrong.

    Ball
    Thompson
    Anderson
    Hillman


    I have to agree with DC and SS about RB position. I hope Hillman can hold onto the ball really good this season so if he blows again FO might move on in 15.

    Now all you guys have to do is convince the coaches they are wrong. ;)

    Mingo the way I see it, the staff views him as the change of pace RB. If Ball were hurt, I see them moving Anderson or Thompson to the starter and still using Hillman as the change of pace guy.

    And you see that - through what mystical - process in your brain?

    We shall see - I started this thread to get the forum on record about Hillman - we will see how it plays out.

    I think it might be close as far as total yards ( rushing + receiving ) .... I think Anderson and Hillman might be called on more in the pass game - and I'm still not sold on Montee's abilities catching to ball ...

    I don't think Hillman should be the first guy in when Montee needs a breather - in other words, Hillman shouldn't be counted on in the same role as Ball, but I think that they will force that issue and I see no reason why it would be any different than last year ....... I can imagine Hillman being extremely conscious of coughing up the ball, and that will only hamper his ability to run free and natural ...

    With that said, I go:

    - Ball
    - Anderson
    - Thompson
    - Bibbs

    ;)

    This. Although Thompson could bump Anderson because of his receiving ability.

    I'm sure Hillman is a great guy. He's too stiff, runs with no swagger. I hope he can prove me wrong and rush for 2000 yards, but I just don't see any semblance of a NFL RB at this point in his career
