Running back Ronnie Hillman has had a rocky start to his NFL career. The speedy back has struggled with fumbles throughout his first two years, benchings and was bypassed on the depth chart last season by undrafted rookie C.J Anderson.
Now in 2014, Ronnie Hillman who is only 22 years of age is having a pretty good offseason. It started back in the Spring when Hillman looked fast in OTA's and minicamp, and it has carried through into Training Camp.
"But I love what Ronnie has done," Studesville said. "From when we started this spring in April forward, he has been unbelievable. He's a completely different guy in the best possible way and I'm just excited about what he's doing, how he's approaching it, how he's making plays on the field. It's been great. It's been there the whole time, but we're finally seeing the maximum side of it. ... I didn't do a good job of bringing it out, but now we are, he's bringing it out."
With the running back position being "wide open" as Denver Broncos Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase called it earlier this offseason, Hillman has a great second chance to earn a role in the Denver Broncos offense.
Hillman is still facing competition from second year player C.J Anderson and rookies Juwan Thompson, Brennan Clay and Kapri Bibbs. It's also only the beginning of August and no preseason games have been played, but this is encouraging news about Hillman.
Lets hope he can keep up the good work and not put the ball on the ground.
