Broncos HC John Fox can see Ronnie Hillman being a full-time RB

If you put Broncos running backs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman @MrHillman2U side by side, it would be fairly obvious which player could better handle the physical toll that comes with being a lead running back in the NFL. Ball has more power in his game and is about 20 pounds heavier than Hillman.
But it's not so simple to head coach John Fox, who said Thursday that Hillman has a "pro body now," and is "more capable" this season of being a full-time running back.

Fantasy Analysis:

Hillman is atop the depth chart right now, and the Broncos talk like they want this to be an ultra-close camp battle. Maybe I'm stubborn, but I still think Ball will be the team's starter in five weeks while Hillman will be the clear second fiddle as a third-down back. But I will admit that Hillman's current 11th-round ADP is way, way, way too low. I hate drafting my teams this early, but if you are in that situation, Hillman is an absolute steal right now.
