The 2010 NFL Draft class exhibited some of the most explosive, as well as versatile playmakers that fans of the league haven't experienced in quite some time.
There were plenty of surprises in the draft as Tim Tebow was selected in the first round, while highly qualified Notre Dame quarterback, Jimmy Clausen slid to the Carolina Panthers in the second round, despite being regarded as a Top-10 selection.
Featured is a list of position battles that could change the lives of rookies or veterans.
If you have any comments/discrepancies, feel free to speak your mind.
There has been much speculation as well as history showing that rookie quarterbacks shouldn't be thrown into the huddle upon their first year in the league. However, with A.J. Feeley and undrafted free agent Thaddeus Lewis out of Duke on their roster, it seems Bradford has the edge.
The Raiders, much to the surprise of the NFL world, has actually been quite savvy this offseason. The Raiders shocked the world on April 22, making a solid selection in Rolando McClain, when many believed they would select workout warriors Bruce Campbell or Jason Pierre-Paul.
But after acquiring linebackers Quentin Groves, formerly a Jacksonville Jaguar, and Kamerion Wimbley, formerly a Cleveland Brown, the Raiders third leading tackler in the 2009 season, Thomas Howard, could be the odd man out.
Either way, the Raiders' training camps could hold some interesting competition, an event many haven't seen in a quite some time.
With Marshawn Lynch, a former first round draft pick, coming off his worst season of his three-year career, and the selection of C.J. Spiller in the draft, there will be an open battle between Lynch, Spiller, and Fred Jackson coming into the 2010 season.
Shaun Phillips has been solid for the Chargers as a pass rusher, however, both Larry English and Shawne Merriman will pose an interesting matchup for him during training camp.
Jerry Jones paid a bit too much when he traded first and third picks for Roy Williams, who produced very little in the 2010 season. Miles Austin emerged as a premier wide out, having a breakout season in which he amassed over 1,300 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Now, with Dez Bryant, Patrick Crayton, and Sam Hurd still on the roster, the Cowboys will have have one of the most intriguing position battles to keep an eye on this offseason.
Back-flipping phenom Jason Pierre-Paul is in an interesting predicament this offseason. After being drafted at No. 15 overall, JPP will have to compete with Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora, and Mathias Kiwanuka.
As of now, Tuck is the slated starter, but with Umenyiora's public discontent this offseason, JPP has a legitimate shot to earn a starting role in the Giants' defense this season.
With Kyle Orton coming off his best statistical season of his career, along with the recent trade for Brady Quinn and the selection of Tim Tebow in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft, The Denver Broncos have a difficult decision ahead of them.
Do they stick with Orton, who almost carried them to the playoffs last year? Or will the pressure from the fans and media to put Tebow on the field convince head coach Josh McDaniels to throw Timmy into the wildfire?
Either way, the three-headed quarterback competition will be one of the most interesting battles of the offseason.
All signs are pointing to Felix Jones getting the majority of carries, after averaging well over six yards-per-carry last season.
Marion Barber is a brutal and tough running back, but leg and foot injuries have derailed him over the past two seasons.
My guess is that the Felix will earn the starting role at the beginning of the season, but Barber will get increased touches as the season progresses.
Matt Moore was pretty comfortable on April 21 and April 22. However, on April 23, the Carolina Panthers selected highly touted Notre Dame quarterback, Jimmy Clausen in the second round.
Moore is slated as the starter, but reports have claimed Clausen is winning over teammates already, and can be in a great position to succeed, given the multiple playmakers the Panthers have on the offensive side of the Ball.
Moore will most likely be starting come Week One, but don't be surprised if Clausen is starting by mid-season.
The New England Patriots selected two of the top-five rated tight end prospects, selecting Arizona standout, Rob Gronkowski with one of the Pats' three second round options.
In the fourth round, the Pats selected Florida Gator, Aaron Hernandez, despite rumors of failed drug tests, the guy is a stud and a playmaker.
As the Patriots drafted two pass-catching tight ends in the 2010 NFL Draft, this may tell us that the Wes Welker injury is worse than documented, and one-hit-wonder, Julian Edelman isn't the answer.
Look for both Hernandez and Gronkowski to have significant impact on the Patriots' offense, considering the No. 1 WR, Randy Moss is in his mid 30's and his production has been declining.
