Which position battles will be the most exciting to watch for the New England Patriots in training camp?

It doesn’t matter if you are a 10-year veteran who is a former first round pick, a rookie undrafted free agent or anything in between, if you are on the roster, you will have a chance to compete with the New England Patriots. Bill Belichick is going to put the best 11 players on the field no matter the situation.

With that in mind, training camp position battles with the Patriots are always interesting. Sure, an incumbent starter is going to have an edge, but if a sixth-round rookie comes and out plays him enough where Belichick and company think he is the better option on game day, they will not hesitate to make a change.

With that in mine, almost every single position on the Patriots is up for grabs. Obviously, it would take a historic effort to knock off somebody like Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski or Jamie Collins, but if the new guys are up for the job, they will get the opportunity. This incoming Patriots’ team is extremely interesting. They appear to lack an obvious starter at certain positions, but they brought in a lot of depth to let the players fight it out in camp.

There are going to be so many jobs on the line in Patriots’ training camp, that I had a difficult time narrowing it down to five. That being said, here are the five training camp position battles that we all need to be watching.
