SI's Peter King thinks Broncos RB Montee Ball is 'better' than RB Ronnie Hillman
Sports Illustrated's Peter King is in Denver and watching the Broncos practice. One observation he has made in his short time there is that rookie running back Montee Ball is better than Ronnie Hillman , and he will win the starting job eventually. Although Hillman got the first snap with the first-team offense in training camp, Ball has been getting some first-team work as well.
Actually, King tweeted that Ball is "better than Pittman" before correcting himself a couple of minutes later. But, yes, I do believe Ball is better than Ronnie Hillman and Michael Pittman. Freudian slip aside, this viewpoint is obviously shared by fantasy owners, too. Ball's current average draft position is in the fourth round; Hillman's is in the 11th. That is still a great value on Hillman, but Ball should dominate the early-down touches in this backfield.
