Detroit Lions: Top 7 Position Battles to Watch for in Training Camp

Regardless of everyone's arbitrary grades and analysis on the 2012 NFL draft, the one thing we can all agree on is it's going to create a whole bunch of positional battles in training camp.

Every single player in the Lions' draft class (along with several undrafted free agents) is in the mix to make the Lions' final roster this year. And while there's certainly some difference between Riley Reiff battling for a starting job and Jonte Green battling for any job, a camp battle is still a camp battle.

The Detroit Lion who is least likely to challenge the roster in training camp is Ryan Broyles, but that's just because there's no telling when he's fully healthy.

As a new second-round pick, it isn't as though he's in any danger of being cut, but the odds of him challenging Nate Burleson or Titus Young in training camp are slim, even if he's ready by opening day.

So that's one camp battle presumably ended before it began. But that's far from the only intriguing battle in camp this year, even if we limit that to guys that just joined the team in the last three weeks.

And to prevent redundancy, let's do just that as we look at seven of the most intriguing potential battles in training camp this year.
