Which position battles do you think will have the most competition in training camp and preseason? 2nd/3rd Cornerback: By all means, Philip Buchanan is a tremendous underachiever so far in his NFL career. That's not to say he doesn't have talent, which he does, but he hasn't put it all together. Between him, Demarcus Faggins, and maybe Chris McKenzie it'll be a pretty good battle. Faggins didn't look like a starting CB most of the time last year (IMO), but our whole team was terrible. I don't remember seeing McKenzie a whole lot last year, so if any of you can fill me in on him it would be appreciated. Left Tackles I think Ephraim Salaam will win the LT position. He's more experienced than the other candidates. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Wand won it though. It seems that the coaches are very high on Wand so that is a plus. Neither Winston or Spencer will be starters as rookies. I think Spencer will become a guard instead of a tackle while Winston will learn from the veterans. The way our O-line has played since 2001, I wouldn't feel comfortable with a rookie starting even with the new coaching staff. Tight End Thanks to bayoudreamn for reminding me of the depth we have at this position. Mark Bruener. Jeb Putzier. Bennie Joppru. Owen Daniels. Holy geez, we actuallly will be utilizing tight ends in our offense! I don't know if we'll actually have a regular starter in this position. If we want to spread the offense more, then Putzier seems like the man to do it. If we want to run the ball then Bruener seems like the man. I think it just depends on the gameplan. We don't know what we'll get out of Bennie Joppru. It's been over 3 years since he played in a real game, and that was in college. In essence, he's a veteran rookie. Owen Daniels was the first pick of the 2nd day I believe. What will we get out of him? Is he a pass catcher? A blocker? I haven't seen many articles mentioning him. Bruener and Putzier are locks, and no matter how well Joppru or Daniels play, I don't think either of them will get higher than 3rd on the depth chart starting the season. Those are my top two. Linebacker could also be added. I hope DeMeco Ryans proves to be a huge asset to the LB corps. He sounds like a quality individual. What battles are you looking forward too?
