During the 2011 NFL season, Pat Shurmur made it a point in almost every press conference to compliment how the Browns "competed" throughout their games. Early in 2012, Cleveland Browns players will still be competing, but some will be trying to beat out their own teammates for a spot on the field on Sundays.
This slideshow will highlight the five most intriguing position battles on the Browns roster for the 2012 NFL season and highlight some Cleveland's draft options at those positions. These slides will also give a little insight into what is currently happening at the position battles and talk about who was released at those spots from last season.
Right tackle is the first spot on the list and one of the biggest positions of concern for the Browns moving forward.
