Broncos | Montee Ball expected to compete for starting job

Denver Broncos executive vice president John Elway and head coach John Fox expect RB Montee Ball to compete for a starting job amongst RBs Willis McGahee, Knowshon Moreno and Ronnie Hillman this year. The team envisions Ball as an every-down back in the NFL. "We expect all these guys to contribute," Elway said. "The earlier you go, the more we hope they contribute."
It would take a lot for Ball to win the starting running back job over both McGahee and Moreno. Hillman is in the picture, too, although he's more of a change-of-pace back. For now, don't prepare to draft Ball unless McGahee or Moreno suffer an injury in training camp or the preseason.
