Notre Dame has plenty of position battles to watch once the 2013 spring practice takes place. With openings in the secondary, linebacker and tight end positions, there is a lot to pay attention to in the next couple of months. There are even spots available at the running back position, offensive line and there could be a quarterback controversy just when you thought there was nothing to see.
Spring practice is just a solid month or two of football to give the coaching staff a chance to see what the team has to work with and what needs to improve. It also gives players a chance to make an impact and prove themselves, slowly making progress up the depth chart and earning more reps during the regular season.
Notre Dame will continue to have one of the most fascinating practices with a bunch of storylines that deserve your attention.
