Cleveland Browns: 5 Biggest Preseason Battles To Watch

Like any team in the NFL, the preseason is a time to view the many different positional battles.

This is the time for players to step up to show the coaching staff that they are the best player on the team at their position and should be the starter come Week 1.

It's the time when rookies, fresh to the game, challenge the team's top players and try to squeeze themselves into a starting position.

As much as the vets may hate it, position battles bring out the best in players.

For the first time in a few years, one of the position battles in Cleveland does not involve who's under center.

Newly hired head coach Pat Shurmur, as well as president Mike Holmgren, have put their faith in second-year quarterback Colt McCoy to lead the Browns back into the top ranks of the league.

Even without a quarterback battle, there are still plenty of position battles going on in Berea, on both sides of the ball, and it looks as if they will go on long into the preseason, maybe even into opening week.
