TheMMQB.com's Peter King spent time at Broncos practices last month and tweeted that Ball looks "better" than Hillman. King predicted Ball would earn the starting job over time, and that's how plenty view this training-camp battle. Notably, the Broncos didn't list any rookies in starting roles, as coach John Fox rarely hands out top duties to first-year players.
We expect the Broncos to use a generous helping of Hillman this season -- Moreno, too -- but Ball is the bell cow in waiting. It's only a matter of time before he's at the top of the heap.
