I wonder if he'll fill the Lance Ball role eventually now that he's contributing on special teams. I'd personally love to see Hillman get the majority of the carries (if he continues to hold up and pass protect) because he's the guy who gives the offense the extra speed dimension which would be absolutely killer when you're trying to chase Thomas/Decker/Welker/possibly Julius Thomas all over the field.
