NFL Films senior producer Greg Cosell believes second-round pick Montee Ball is an "ideal fit" for the Denver Broncos' offense, citing his burst, fluidity and ability to get skinny at point of attack. Although Cosell's one question was if Ball could be a true foundation running back at the NFL level, the former Wisconsin star has landed in the perfect offense. There's no feature back "in a strict sense" in Peyton Manning's offense. Cosell believes Ball already is the best runner on the Broncos' roster.
The main thing standing in the way of Ball and 250+ touches in 2013 is HC John Fox and his propensity to play veterans over rookies when given the option. Ball also needs to prove that he can pass protect, which is crucial when playing next to QB Peyton Manning. He'll be drafted as a fantasy RB2, but could be part of an ugly RBBC if he doesn't break away from the pack early on in training camp.
