2. Kareem Hunt – Kansas City Chiefs
Kareem Hunt emerged onto the NFL scene in 2017 following Spencer Ware’s injury that held him out of the season opener vs New England. Hunt’s first carry for the Chiefs resulted in a lost fumble, very similar to Broncos running back Devontae Booker’s first carry.
He started every game for the Chiefs in 2017 and finished his rookie season with 1,300 yards rushing 11 total touchdowns (eight rushing, three receiving) with 1,700 all-purpose yards.
His bulky and explosive frame makes it difficult for defenses to tackle him.
The Chiefs will rely heavily on Hunt in 2018 to make the transition for Pat Mahomes as a starter much simpler.
His emergence in 2017 nearly placed him at the top of the list.
The Broncos and other members of the division will have their hands full with Hunt who is also a threat as a receiver out of the backfield.
