It’s said that competition for the job can only make a player better.
As usual, we’re about to find that out as all 32 teams in the NFL get ready to show off their prized new acquisitions, be it via free agency, trade or the 2013 draft.

Hence, we’re taking a look at more than a handful worth of mano-a-mano battles (give or take a few manos) that have caught our eye as teams prepare for the upcoming season.
And we’ll find out soon enough if the general managers and coaches pushed the right buttons when it came to filling those holes and making their respective teams better.
