The Cleveland Browns are still a few months away from training camp, but once they hit the field their will be plenty of position battles to watch.
Training camp is always a highlight of the summer for Cleveland Browns fans, who love nothing more than seeing the orange helmets hit the field after the long offseason.
This year’s training camp should be no different, but will have the added bonus of some true position battles.
The most obvious one will come at the quarterback position as head coach Hue Jackson sorts through Cody Kessler, Brock Osweiler and DeShone Kizer in an attempt to find someone worthy of lining up behind center when the season opens.
The action to claim one of the final spots along the defensive line will also be a camp highlight as some familiar names – Nate Orchard and Xavier Cooper – will be looking to hold onto what has quickly become a tenuous roster spot.
One position that will gain considerable attention will be at right tackle, where second-year player Shon Coleman will enter camp as the favorite to claim the position over Cameron Erving, who will try to shake off the failure of playing center and move to what should be a more natural position for him at tackle.
It should be a fun summer – once it finally gets here.
