Broncos | Ronnie Hillman had hard time keeping on weight

Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman said that last season he dropped to around 180 pounds, while team officials say it was closer to 175. He had weighed 200 pounds at last February's Scouting Combine, but early-season injuries probably played a role in his slow start to last season.

Denver will monitor Hillman's weight this summer, and the back hopes to play 2013 at 195 pounds, which is what he has weighed in as during OTAs. He's adjusted his workouts to try meeting that goal. Hillman has been running with the starters this past week but will have to prove he can by physical enough to challenge for No. 1 back duties.

Fantasy Tip: It's a crowded backfield, though, that also carries rookie Montee Ball (widely considered the favorite to start), Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno, so we'll have to see how the summer shakes out before confidently saying Hillman has sleeper draft value.
