Ask the Expert Question: Which training camp battles are you most interested in?

Which upcoming training camp battle are you most intrigued by, and why?
Let me give you three, one from each of the main FF positions. First the PHI QB battle between Michael Vick and Nick Foles. Whoever wins the keys to the Chip Kelly offense will be a steal in the draft. If it is Vick  my bet is he will not last the entire season ( I also like Matt Barkley but will save that for another week). At STL they have three RBs fighting for the starting role: Daryl Richardson, Zac Stacy and Isaiah Pead. That is the order I expect them to perform. Richardson showed some flash last year and may be rewarded with the starting gig on day one. Whether he can hold it remains to be seen. Finally, who will win the battle for the Pat's WR2. They have a few rookies in Dobson and Boyce and let Donald Jones go this week; so my money is on Julian Edelman. But I am definitely keeping an eye on this battle as a sleeper WR.
