Preseason is the perfect time for coaches to see which new players deserve a starting role and which players will be watching the season from the sidelines.
Battling for a position during preseason is a common occurrence as every player wants to be the No. 1 guy at their position. Last year, we were treated to a three-way battle between fullbacks, which included the veteran Tony Richardson, "The Terminator" John Conner and Jason Davis.
This year, there are a handful of positions up for grabs, with numerous players at the ready; all they have to do is perform and the position is theirs. As the first New York Jets preseason game approaches, here are the training camp battles of 2011.
As always, feedback is welcome. Enjoy!
