Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman has responded after a listless 2013. He’s been a little grittier in pass protection and seems to have learned the sometimes painful lesson that he has to stay on his toes to have a chance to stay in the lineup.
C.J. Anderson, Juwan Thompson and Brennan Clay will hash it out for the other spots. Anderson was sluggish in OTAs and minicamp at 234 pounds. After his performance in those offseason workouts, there were plenty of folks with the team who were not confident he would keep a roster spot at that weight. But he’s about 215 pounds in camp and looks more like the guy who made the roster last seasonas an undrafted rookie.
Hillman seems to be ahead of Anderson at this point, but Anderson looks better than he did in OTAs/minicamp since he lost the extra weight.
