5. Ronnie Hillman, RB

We’re all excited to see how C.J. Anderson does in this new offense, but how about the emergence of Ronnie Hillman? He played really well last year before getting hurt, and this preseason he showed better burst than any back the Broncos have and offers an element of speed that no other back on the roster can.

I’m really excited to see Hillman and Anderson, perhaps playing a very similar role to the ones we saw from Tatum Bell and Mike Anderson in 2005.
