Peyton Hillis Signed

July 17, 2008

Another Denver Bronco draft pick was signed yesterday. Peyton Hillis finally agreed to terms with the Denver Broncos. He was the 5th draft pick signed.

As we all know that per team policy the terms were not disclosed. Hillis was the 227th overall draft pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.

Peyton HIllis played fullback for his entire career at Arkansas with other RB greats such as Darren McFadden and Felix Jones. Both of which were drafted in this years first round.

Though Hillis was not invisible this season as he broke team records for both running backs in career receptions, reception yards, and reception touchdowns. He broke those as well as single season running back records in receptions and reception yards in 2007.

Now we have signed our last few picks and only have 4 left to sign before training camp. They are Ryan Clady, Eddie Royal, Kory Lichtensteiger, and Jack Williams.

Hillis will also have a rare chance to start with competition like Mike Bell and Cecil Sapp at the Fullback position.

I personally love this guy. He is talented and I hope he wins the Fullback job. He definitively deserves the job. I would like to see him work on his blocking and then he could be one of the best in the league. So I will be pulling for him this season.
