    Top 25 NFC position battles during training camp

    • By Gregg Rosenthal

    NFL fans can't learn that much from training camp. Preseason results are irrelevant and it's difficult to separate reality from hype in practice reports.

    I focus on two things in every team's camp: Which players are getting first-team snaps, and which players are hurt. Since it's too early to know who truly is healthy, this column focuses on the position competitions.

    Camp coverage on NFL Network
    "Inside Training Camp" will air on NFL Network each day from July 24 through Aug. 8 from 10 a.m.- 7 p.m. ET .

    We'll start with our Top 25 position battles to watch in the NFC, and break out the AFC list on Monday. Ahoy:


    18. Dallas Cowboys strong-side linebacker: Justin Durant vs. Alex Albright vs. Brandon Magee

    Durant has to prove he can stay healthy. Albright is popular within the organization and Magee received a lot of money for an undrafted player. This battle is typical of the Cowboys, who have shaky depth at No. 3 receiver (Dwayne Harris vs. Terrance Williams) and backup running back (Joseph Randle vs. Lance Dunbar.) A late free-agent signing at any of these spots wouldn't surprise.

    Durant should start barring injury. I think Magee will make the team but could easily be wrong. They are going to try and find a place for Albright to get some snaps. If he doesn't have a position then it may be hard to keep the guy who is a player.

    If Albright wins the job, Durant would get cut i would assume... So I kind of hope Durant wins the job so we can keep both guys on the roster and use a rotation between them.

    You know I didn't consider that. I guess that could happen. I wonder what the cap consequences would be. I don't know where they are going to put all these LBs. They are rich there and I think someone will be cut who could end up contributing this or next year for another team.

    Magee is Carter's backup.

    And how is Harris/Williams and Randle/Dunbar shakey depth?
