Cincinnati Bengals: Top Position Battles to Watch in Camp
David Kohl/Associated Press

With every training camp come the always interesting position battles.  Some of them aren't as high profile as a quarterback battle, but for the Cincinnati Bengals, guys could be going head-to-head over plenty of spots.

The first one that comes to mind involves Vincent Rey, who had a breakout season last year filling in for longtime starter Rey Maualuga.  Is there potential for the starting job to change hands?  Some may say that's ridiculous given how long Maualuga has been here, but it could be time for a change, especially if Rey outshines Maualuga in camp.

Some competitions don't even include starting positions.  Yes, the ideal situation for every athlete on the field is to start, but sometimes you just have to make the roster and pay your dues.  Such could be said for the fourth running back slot on the 53-man roster—that is a competition that will garner virtually no attention from the media, but it will be an important battle between Rex Burkhead and James Wilder Jr.

Some of these battles will come down to the final preseason snap, so what positions should we be watching this preseason?
