Philadelphia Eagles: 5 Position Battles To Watch for in Preseason

The Philadelphia Eagles may have signed several Pro Bowl-caliber players to an already solid team, but there's still plenty of starting sports up for grabs.

The Eagles have several rookies looking like favorites to be opening week starts while also having several veterans trying to just not get cut to make room for all of the new talent. Right guard and backup quarterback already seem to be set.

Danny Watkins is working with the first unit while spending extra time with position coach Howard Mudd to get his technique down. Watkins is learning a new offensive line position as a rookie in a limited amount of time.

Vince Young is already working with the second unit and appears to have already locked up the backup quarterback spot despite having to learn a new offense while Mike Kafka has already spend a full season in the offense.

Young's work ethic and willingness to accept a lesser role on the team shows how much he has matured as a player. It seems his "dream team" comment was completely overblown.

Still, the Eagles have five spots that may go down into the final week before the regular season before they are finally decided.
