    I see some great position battles this year:

    LG: Kosier vs. Peterman
    C: Johnson vs. Gurode
    RT: Fabini vs. Pettiti
    DE: Ellis vs. Canty
    ILB: Ayodele vs. Burnett
    FS: Coleman vs. Watkins vs. Davis vs. Beriault

    You will also see several battles for the backup linebacker positions.

    I see Kosier, Johnson, Fabini, Canty, Ayodele, and Coleman starting (Watkins will start by mid-season.

    Singleton, Burnett, Ogbogu, and Shanle will get the backup LB spots.

    id say Carpenter and Singelton too. I wouldnt go ahead and just hand over a starting spot to a rookie just yet.

    Whatever, sounds like we have a lot of depth this year. Although I still expect Ellis to be traded.

    Isn't Ratliff a DE as well? What about Spears? Coleman? Now Hatcher?

    Lots of rotation even if Ellis is gone!

    Spears has a DE locked up IMO. Ratliff will be a backup at DE. I don't think he is a threat to win a starting spot at this time. Hatcher will make the team but also will not challenge for a starting spot. I think Coleman is gone.

    You're right. He could be in the mix for both guard spots.

    Julius is our starter and I wouldn't call a fight for the backup QB job much of a position battle. But there are several on our team.

    That should be interesting as Davis is a better fit at SS than FS anyway. Maybe he could end up backing up both positions.
