NFL: Cincinnati Bengals Training Camp USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin

Position battles are some of the most difficult storylines to parse. On the one hand, we have a regular stream of reporting from those on site, detailing who’s doing what on a given day. On the other, we don’t know exactly why certain players are doing certain things, or what coaches are looking to evaluate.

True, it’s bad when players are dropping passes or fumbling snaps or what have you, but figuring out exactly how the coaching staff is evaluating a given position battle is hard, if not impossible, from the outside looking in.

Yet we know the battles are taking place, and we know that the winners will help shape the upcoming season. The results may yet be far off, but their effects are perhaps already in motion.
