    I don't know about the most intriguing ,but DT is without a doubt the most important.

    I watched the NFL replay of the Rams versus Seattle in the weak city. The DT battle is over it doesn't matter what happens in camp. Glover is a situational player and Kennedy has had good training camps before and still sucked.

    Wroten and Carriker will start at DT and NT and they will learn on the fly.

    The interesting battle will be in the secondary at both CB and S.

    I think the most interesting will be our LB battles. I believe that is the position which has the greatest chance of change. But that is my opinion based on the fact that I didn't like any of our LB's last year.

    As the offensive line goes, so goes the season. A marginal improvement of the DL should be enought. If we are not able to protect Bulger and open holes for Jackson, then it does not matter how good the DL is. An improved ball control style of offense, should keep the defense on the sidelines.

    For me it's the D-line with the O-line a close 2nd.

    Re: Camp Battles: Which is the Most Intriguing?

    For me it's a push -- O-line and D-line. Specifically on the O-line I am curious as to who will prevail at the center position. Since we won't be keeping three centers someone will either be cut, or be versatile enough to back up at the guard spot. McCollum could possibly fit that bill. I think Romberg has the edge at this point because of his solid play last year coupled with the fact that Linehan seems to be leaning toward youth on the O-line. Fry is the dark horse, but apparently is a mauler with a mean streak who has impressive smarts as well. Improvement on the D-line is obviously the area of most concern and will have some much needed competition in camp. Wroten, Carriker, and Jackson or Ryan need to step up big time. I suppose one could expect the most out of Wroten given the fact that he was a 3rd round selection and has a year under his belt in Haslett's system. For whatever reason though, I find the O-line competition the most intriguing ... What is going to happen with Claude Terrell? Is he really going to be a factor, or was Linny just blowing smoke? Could Ken Shackleford be the real deal, and ease Steussie out after this season?

    Re: Camp Battles: Which is the Most Intriguing?

    The Defensive Line is the most intriguing and important battle in my opinion, with the Offensive a close second. It'll be interesting to see what guys they plan on using in the rotation and how they'll use them. I think it's great we have guys with versitility like Carriker who can play virtually anywhere on the line. It should be interesting to see if Kennedy can finally get it together and live up to a fraction of his potential. Same with Wroten, I can't wait to see if he's developed into the solid UT he's supposed to. I think we have a good core of young players and if any of them are willing to step up we should have a nice versitile D Line for a few years.
