With free-agent pickup Willis McGahee in the picture, the Broncos clearly will go with a committee at running back.
McGahee and Knowshon Moreno have been splitting repetitions in the first-team offense. But the expectation, at least at this early juncture, is that the bigger, stronger McGahee may assume more of the power-oriented role in short-yardage and goal-line situations. Moreno is decidedly slimmer and appears quicker in camp. The open question is whether he'll be able to sustain a consistent pounding.
McGahee has more of a burst in the open field than one might expect from a 235-pound runner. Still to be determined is what the pecking order will be. Both Moreno and McGahee have taken first-team reps, depending on the down and distance and the offensive packages.
