After selecting a 6-foot-7 quarterback, the Broncos went to the other end of the spectrum with their next pick, grabbing 5-foot-10 running back Ronnie Hillman.
Hillman said he hopes to come in and use his diverse skill set to carve a niche on the team.
“I’m just going to come in and try to win. That’s all I can do,” Hillman said. “I’m just bringing my versatility to the team and be able to create more offense and come in and learn from the vets.”
Hillman, who was once coached by Snoop Dogg as a youth football player, left San Diego State after his redshirt sophomore season as he works towards achieving his lifelong dream.
“I’m just excited. It’s been my dream to play in the NFL for a while,” Hillman said. “I’m just thankful.”
