Recommendation: Vice president of football operations John Elway compared Hillman to Darren Sproles due to his size, speed and ability to catch the football. It's very presumptuous to expect Sproles-like production from Hillman, especially with Willis McGahee likely to get most of the first- and second-down touches, although he could make for a nice play in PPR leagues. He'll be battling with Lance Ball for third-down touches at first, with potentially some mid-season competition from Knowshon Moreno if the former first-round pick can return well from his torn ACL.
