Pick Grade: B

The Broncos traded up 20 spots to get Hillman, who was insanely productive at San Diego State but is a little on the small side. Good speed back who can provide the Broncos with some versatility at the position. A decent selection but a strange one given the availability of Chris Polk and Lamar Miller.
