Ball is not your typical rookie back. He's much smarter and more mature than any rookie back Fox has ever had. On top of that, Fox has made it clear since he came to Denver that he doesn't really like Moreno. Betting on Moreno is basically betting on Ball totally sucking in pass pro, and I think that's unlikely. Dude is just too smart and tough not to pick that stuff up quick.
And all of that is leaving out the likely possibility that Moreno pulls something in TC and isn't healthy enough to start opening day anyway.
