Day Seven: Broncos Training Camp Observations
In my ideal world of the running back situation, the position would be headlined by the bowling ball, CJ Anderson. Followed by Devontae Booker and local college kid, Kapri Bibbs. The Broncos could choose to carry four running backs with Hillman being a candidate; however due to lack of injuries and Bibbs shinning in camp, it will be hard for Hillman to make the roster.
Bibbs has shined in camp from day one. The CSU kid totaled over 1,700 yards while as a Ram in the last year in college. Bibbs is the ideal back for the Kubiak offense as a one-cut runner and fight for every yard back. Toughness from camp is easily been felt in day seven of camp due to Bibbs’ ferocious style of running the past couple days. He has bulldozed linebackers with the right pad level to continue moving forward earning more yards.
Kubiak could duplicate what he did in Baltimore having a three-headed monster at tailback. Splitting carries is an option as the preseason starts, but paying Anderson $16 million in a four-year deal would seem the Broncos want him to be the bell cow. Yet, history proves to not be in Anderson’s favor. Anderson played like a Broncos MVP late in the year, but again he will need to put together a full season of bowling ball football for him to earn his first ever 1,000 yard season. Do not count out Bibbs for making ideal carries in the season and preseason. If the team feels the knee of Booker is not fully healthy, Bibbs could see his production rise.
