Denver Broncos: Full Position Breakdown and Depth-Chart Analysis at Running Back
Ben Margot/Associated Press

The position of running back is clearly not the focus that it once was in the NFL. That is evidenced by the fact that no running back has been selected higher than No. 37 overall in the last two NFL drafts.

Still, the teams that are able to establish a solid running game in the current pass-happy NFL have a leg up on their opponents.

Seattle and San Francisco, two of the best teams in the league at the moment, rely heavily on their running game—and they do it very well.

Despite Peyton Manning setting passing records unlike anything the league had ever seen before last year, the running game will be vital to the team reaching its ultimate goal of winning a Super Bowl.

Throughout training camp and preseason this summer, no position battle in Denver will be more interesting to watch than the one at running back.
