Previewing the NFL's 25 Biggest Training-Camp Battles

Training camp and the preseason might seem meaningless to you, but they can make or break seasons and careers every summer. We don't take them lightly here.

From the rookie quarterbacks challenging for starter's snaps right away (Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater, Derek Carr, et al) to the running backs fighting to be the bell cows (such as rookie Tre Mason pushing Zac Stacy for the St. Louis Rams), we break down the 25 most intriguing training-camp position battles coming out of offseason workouts.

You will notice much of the 25 focuses on the offensive skill positions. That is because backup defenders wind up getting a lot of action in rotations even if they don't start. We still have a handful of intriguing defensive battles, but we break down the more prominent battles for touches and snaps on the offensive side of the ball more in-depth here.
