Everyone can probably agree that the Broncos will feature a running back-by-committee approach in 2013.
Willis McGahee will be 32years old in October and will be coming off a knee injury that sidelined him for the final six games of 2012 and the playoff loss to Baltimore.
Montee Ball was drafted out of Wisconsin in the second round and the team has a bevy of other backs on the roster.
Lance Ball, Mario Fannin, Jacob Hester, Jeremiah Johnson and CJ Anderson will all fight for roster spots.
And let's not forget about second-year runner Ronnie Hillman and Knowshon Moreno, who experienced a resurrection of sorts in the latter part of 2012 before having to leave the playoff game against the Ravens with an injury.
This position will be hard to diagnose, but if the Broncos opt for a youth movement, McGahee's days could be numbered.
There is every reason to believe that Ball could break out in his rookie season.
He ran for an amazing 3,753 yards and 55 touchdowns during his junior and senior seasons alone at Wisconsin.
Hillman will be given his chances, as long as his pass-protection has improved.
Moreno will have to prove he can stay healthy or he could be looking up at the depth chart.
All four guys should make the team unless Lance Ball or Fannin has a terrific preseason and forces the coaching staff to make a tough decision.
If McGahee is fully recovered from his knee injury and has no setbacks, he should get the first shot due to his experience. How long he holds the job will be another question.
Projected Winner: McGahee
