Spring practice has nearly begun for the Wisconsin Badgers, the first chance for Gary Andersen and his new coaching staff to get a look at what kind of football players they've got heading into the 2013 season.
There will be plenty of familiar faces and even a few new ones with early enrollees in Sojourn Shelton and Keelon Brookins. A new coaching staff means very little is guaranteed as far as who will start at each position for Wisconsin next season even though the Badgers only lost seven starters from their B1G championship squad.
While it's safe to assume players like Chris Borland, Jared Abbrederis and David Gilbert will retain their starting roles, and that both James White and Melvin Gordon will see their fair share of carries out of the backfield with Montee Ball out of the picture, so much is yet to be decided, and spring practice will at least begin to mold the Badgers into form.
There are some battles to be won—what are the three most important positions up for grabs?
