Hillman is the projected No.3 RB in this offense, but there were signs of maturity that translated to production last year. His upside player comparison is Tiki Barber, a smaller back with ball security issues that developed into an All-Pro workhorse. Don't expect the same from Hillman, but don't discount his ability to help your team if C.J. Anderson and Montee Ball struggle or get hurt.

Summary

Ronnie Hillman was thrust into the starting lineup last year after Montee Ball went down with a groin injury in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals. He responded by posting two 100-yard rushing performances in four starts. In the two contests where he didn't rush for 100 yards, Hillman scored four touchdowns. He was an effective starter for the Broncos fast-paced offense until he went down with his own injury in Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders. Hillman then watched as C.J. Anderson led the league in rushing over the final six weeks of the season. This season, Hillman is a bit of an odd fit for the balanced rushing attack and zone-blocking system the Broncos will employ under new head coach Gary Kubiak. Patience and decisiveness are the primary attributes running backs need in such a system, and neither one of those traits can be declared as strengths for Hillman. He's the fastest back on the roster, and Denver could certainly use him as a change-of-pace back behind Anderson. Hillman will compete with Montee Ball to be the team's number two back in 2015.
