The running back position isn't exactly on lockdown in Denver.
The Broncos let Knowshon Moreno and his 1,038 rushing yards from 2013 go in free agency, opening up an opportunity for second-year back Montee Ball to take over. Behind him, though, is plenty of competition.
Undrafted free agent Kapri Bibbs might be in the mix for a backup role, and he is turning heads thus far, according to Bleacher Report's Cecil Lammey:
He has looked good during rookie minicamp and the full-team minicamp that is going on right now. Bibbs is looking swift with the ball in his hands, and he’s been able to turn the corner with good burst during 11-on-11 drills.
Offensive coordinator Adam Gase recently praised Bibbs after practice: "He’s done a good job. All these free agents that we’ve had out here, the rookies in that running back room have been very impressive. You can tell it’s not too big for them and they’re stepping up and getting their reps, and doing a good job at it."
There is plenty of competition for him, but Bibbs is making early noise that could land him on the 53-man roster if he keeps it up over the next couple of months.
