Hillman... I don't see what everyone else seems to see at this point but he's good depth and a change of pace. Mcgahee has this season left (if he's lucky) and Moreno, well I can't say I'll be sad when we replace him. The rest of our stable isn't worth mentioning imo.
I feel the same way. At this point, picking at the end of the middle-late rounds, take chances on guys like this. Guy was on his way to being a top draft pick before he got hurt, and we certainly won't need him this year, so give him a year to recover and train, learn the playbook, get some carries in, and become the #2 back or maybe more the following year.
