The competition for the fourth running back job will be a heated one, and everyone on the roster will have a chance to make the cut.
That includes undrafted free agents Juwan Thompson, Kapri Bibbs and Brennan Clay. All three put up solid numbers in college and all three should compete in Denver.
Bibbs scored 31 touchdowns in 2013, Thompson averaged 5.4 yards per carry and Clay averaged 5.5 yards per carry. Bibbs had the most impressive stats in college, but Clay stood out in areas that don't always come up on the stat sheet.
His blocking skills could intrigue the Broncos, as protecting Peyton Manning is of the utmost importance. Also, he caught 16 balls in 2013 and has special teams experience.
Thompson has thrived in some of the same areas, but his power-running style might not be what the Broncos are looking for. His play is similar to that of C.J. Anderson, who also checks in around 225 pounds.
Bibbs, on the other hand, doesn't blow anyone away with his size or his speed. His knack for the end zone caught the attention of scouts, however. If he produces in the NFL like he did in college, he could be a stud.
All three of these players (and Jerodis Williams) could legitimately make the team. Look for Clay's unique skill set to serve him well, but also watch for Bibbs' playmaking ability to force the Broncos brass to have a hard time on cut day.
