Philadelpia Eagles: Updating the Biggest Training Camp Battles

Training camp is officially under way at Lehigh for the Philadelphia Eagles. The rookies are already here while the rest of the team will report on July 25h. It will be a fierce competition all around as several players are trying to climb the depth chart, or in some cases, just find a spot on the final 53-man roster.

Most of the starting spots and key depth roles are set. There are a few spots which will remain open over the next few weeks. This is a team that started 4-8 last season. What some players did last season will mean little in earning a starting job this season.

Training camp isn't about finding 53 players with the most experience in your scheme. Training camp is about finding the 53 best players on your roster—period.

Five key positions are available for the taking at Lehigh. Three starting jobs, weak-side linebacker, slot cornerback and left tackle, along with the No. 2 tight end and running back, are wide open.

Veterans will battle rookies and high draft picks will battle players who never heard their name called on draft weekend. All these players, battling for a position, will come in with a clean slate.

It will really be about who has made the most progression through camp and who's the best fit at their position.
