Summary

Devontae Booker is at the top of the depth chart for the Broncos...for now. The team moved on from C.J. Anderson this offseason, and that catapulted Booker to first-string running back. He's done little to prove he can be a lead back in the NFL, especially on a team like the Broncos that wants to be a run-heavy unit. Booker only had five plays over 20 yards in 2017, so he's more of a grinder and not the explosive player that could threaten a defense on any carry. He's also a better fit in a power-gap scheme that the Broncos won't run in 2018 as they'll use more zone-blocking concepts. Poor production and odd fit don't equal great projections for Booker..and oh yeah, he'll have to keep rookie Royce Freeman out of the top spot. Booker has great hands and can be used effectively on screens and swing passes, but that's not enough to be a featured back in the NFL. So, again, Booker is the top back for now but will face serious competition for touches from Freeman in the Broncos backfield and he may end up losing his top spot to the rookie eventually. (June 8)
