Ronnie Hillman currently No. 2 in Denver
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Broncos' Ronnie Hillman has "usually been the second running back up behind [Montee] Ball and has been effective so far in training camp," reports the team's website. Hillman, who's ahead of C.J. Anderson, is "hitting the holes well," the report said.

The website said there's a sizable gap between those top three backs and four newcomers trying to make the team.

Ronnie Hillman the better backup bet behind Ball?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

In a projection of the Broncos 53-man roster, ESPN's Jeff Legwold wrote that rusher Ronnie Hillman would be the backup to starter Montee Ball while fellow running back C.J. Anderson wouldn't make the team. Anderson had been receiving some positive attention this offseason. 

Undrafted rookies Brennan Clay and Juwan Thompson also figure into the competition to back up Ball, and both of those players have a shot to make the roster, according to Legwold. Clay is a good pass catcher and Thompson is a bigger back who can pass protect and work on special teams.

C.J. Anderson, Ronnie Hillman fighting for No. 2 job
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Broncos are going with Montee Ball as the starting running back this season, but the No. 2 job behind him is wide open.

The battle will likely come down to C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman, and Anderson is pushing Hillman for the job, reports the Denver Post.

The report says "Anderson is a serious threat" to be No. 2 behind Ball even though Hillman still has the inside track.

Backup RB job in Denver 'wide open'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase made it clear that running back Montee Ball is the starter, but everyone behind him on the depth chart is competing to be the No. 2 guy. 

"I would say everybody behind Montee right now is competing for the second spot. It's wide open," Gase said via a Denver Post video. "Whoever wants to step up and take that spot, that's what we're looking for."

C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman are the primary candidates for the job, though Jerodis Williams , Brennan Clay , Juwan Thompson and Kapri Bibbs are also on the roster.

Ronnie Hillman under the gun in Denver
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman has fumbled four times over his first two seasons and must improve to retain his roster spot, reports the Denver Post. He's currently the No. 3 tailback behind Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson.

"We've talked to him, (running backs coach) Eric (Studesville) and myself, as far as: 'Hey, this is a new start to the year. Whatever happened in the past, you've got to build off it. We've just got to start over,'" offensive coordinator Adam Gase told the paper.

Gase added Hillman has "got to work his butt off and make sure he puts himself in a great position to contribute this year."
