Undrafted rookie Juwan Thompson has moved to No. 4 on the Broncos' tailback depth chart.

He's running ahead of fellow UDFAs Kapri Bibbs and Brennan Clay, and behind Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman, and C.J. Anderson. At a sturdy 5-foot-11, 226, Thompson ran a respectable 4.57 forty at Duke's Pro Day with a 9-foot-11 broad jump after playing in Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe' pro-style offense. He knows how to pass protect and is someone to monitor in extra-deep leagues.

Broncos RBs coach Eric Studesville has been impressed with Ronnie Hillman's camp.

"From when we started this spring in April forward, he has been unbelievable," Studesville said of Hillman. "He's a completely different guy in the best possible way and I'm just excited about what he's doing." Studesville's praise comes two days after DenverBroncos.com reported that Hillman, and not C.J. Anderson, has been running as the No. 2 behind Montee Ball. It will be a battle to monitor closely in the preseason, but Hillman's draft pedigree should give him a leg up.

C.J. Anderson has dropped his weight from 234 pounds at minicamp to roughly 215 pounds now.

Anderson was reportedly sluggish during the offseason program, and people within the Broncos thought he wouldn't keep a roster spot at that weight. So now he's slimmed down and is looking like he did last year, when he made the squad as UDFA. Anderson is our favorite Montee Ball handcuff as long as he beats out Juwan Thompson and Brennan Clay.

Montee Ball performed well through the first week of training camp.

Ball has reportedly "shown vision in the run game, decisiveness in his cuts and consistent, quality work in the passing game." ESPN's Broncos reporter says the second-year back is "poised for a big season" and suggests 250 carries. We also know he's going to get all the goal-line work in the game's most explosive offense and is a solid pass-catcher as well. Ball is currently ranked as fantasy's No. 8 running back in our online Draft Guide.

Ronnie Hillman "has usually been the second running back up" during Broncos camp.

Montee Ball is the unquestioned starter, but the competition behind him is wide open. Despite C.J. Anderson being the crowd favorite to win the job, Hillman is ahead at this point in camp. With four fumbles in only 140 career carries, he still has to improve his ball security if he hopes to earn coaching-staff trust. Hillman is currently going undrafted in standard fantasy leagues. We still like Anderson as a better late-round stab if you're handcuffing Ball. GM John Elway has repeatedly referred to Hillman as a "change of pace" back," while bowling-ball Anderson has some similarities to Zac Stacy.

Broncos activated CB Chris Harris (knee) from the active/PUP list.

Harris was cleared by Dr. James Andrews on Monday, and passed his Broncos physical on Tuesday. Coming off a strong season for the AFC champions, Harris will man the slot, barring a setback.

Broncos CB Chris Harris (knee, PUP) has been cleared for limited practice.

He got the go-ahead from Dr. James Andrews on Monday. It may be a while before Harris is officially activated, but he remains on track to man the slot in Week 1.

Julius Thomas spent time working with Tony Gonzalez this offseason.

Thomas and Gonzalez live near each other in the Los Angeles area. "I picked his brain on, what are sort of the things you're looking for?" Thomas said. "Not just technique, but what's going through your mind during plays? What do you focus on? How do you prepare for the day? His routine." By all accounts, Orange Julius has not rested on his breakout 2013 season that saw him finish as fantasy's No. 3 tight end. With Eric Decker gone and Thomas in a contract year, there's room for significant statistical growth.

Second-round rookie WR Cody Latimer is a full participant at Broncos camp.

A foot injury limited Latimer this spring, but the 56th pick in May's draft is shining early in camp. He beat first-round CB Bradley Roby for a long TD from Brock Osweiler in Thursday's practice and has "showed no issues" with the foot. In addition to his impressive size-speed combination, the Denver Post reports the Broncos considered Latimer "the best blocking receiver in the draft."

Demaryius Thomas (personal) will miss the first four days of training camp.

Thomas is attending funeral services for his grandmother in Georgia and isn't expected back until early next week. Now entering his third season in this Peyton Manning offense, there's no concerns whatsoever with the missed time. Thomas has piled up a ridiculous 186-2,864-24 line over the last two seasons.

Broncos SLB Von Miller (knee) has been cleared for limited work, and will avoid opening camp on the active/PUP list.

The Broncos will ease Miller back after he tore his right ACL in Week 16. Miller will be held out of contact until the third preseason game, at the earliest. Barring setbacks, Miller will be on the field for the opener. He slimmed down in the offseason and is fully committed to a bounce-back season. With DeMarcus Ware opposite him, Miller should easily post double-digit sacks.
Jul 23 - 2:59 PM

Broncos placed CB Chris Harris (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Harris is about six months removed from partially tearing his ACL, and estimated he was at 80-85 percent health two weeks ago. He's scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews in the near future. Harris is expected to return at some point during camp and be ready to roll for Week 1. Harris will man the slot.

Broncos owner Pat Bowlen has given up control of the team as he battles Alzheimer's disease.

The 70-year-old Bowlen has owned the Broncos for 30 years, establishing himself as one of the game's iconic executives while going to the Super Bowl six times and winning twice. "It's a really, really sad day," said team president Joe Ellis, who is assuming control of the Broncos. "It's sad for his family, his wife and his seven children. It's sad for everyone in the organization. And it's sad for all the Bronco fans who know what Pat Bowlen meant to them as an owner. It's a day nobody wanted to see happen."

Broncos S Eric Hagg is retiring.

A 2011 seventh-round pick of the Browns, Hagg combined for 22 appearances across his first two NFL campaigns, but was out of the league last season. Rather than play out his remote shot at cracking the Broncos' 53-man roster, Hagg has decided to go out on his own terms. The Nebraska product is only 23.

Julius Thomas told Larry Brown Sports he "absolutely" wants to stay in Denver long term.

Thomas is entering a contract year, and GM John Elway has made it clear he doesn't value J.T. at Jimmy Graham's level. Thomas doesn't seem to mind. "Absolutely," said the ascending 26-year-old. "I love Denver. It’s a great city. I really love that franchise, fan base, I would look forward to being there for a long time." Thomas could be a candidate for the franchise tag in 2015.
