Hopefully he can make a similar impact to Sproles, that would be nice.

Yeah I was being funny.


I reckon he might have a Correll Buckhalter like career, without the injiries hopefully.

Which RBs are comparable to Hillman in seize? Sproles, MJD... who else?

For the record, I'd say Hillman could turn into a Shady McCoy 2.0.

No chance.

Hillman is a lot like Jones for the Raiders. Fast, explosive but questions on if he can run between the tackles and take hits.

He should thrive w/ Manning working him in space. However as an every down runner, he's going to have to prove he can take the punishment.

Sproles, Shady and MJD did it on the big stage in college. Like Jones, Hillman dominated lesser competition.

I wouldn't say no chance. He is very young, like 20 or 21, so there is no reason he can't gain power and explosiveness. He is still a kid. Probably not fast enough to be great, but he can be real good. He showed alot more power this last season. Still don't know why they moved up to draft him? Confused

I can't remember where i read it, i believe it was someone from the DP, but they talked with multiple people from the NFL who said Hillman was the biggest reach the Broncos made. Said they think Denver wanted an RB and panicked after running backs started going quicker than they expected.

I can see that being the case. I wasn't surprised at where Wolfe, or Osweiller were picked... Hillman raised my eyebrows a little bit.

With that being said, what about Warrick Dunn as a comparable?
