Good news everyone. NFL Training Camp is right around the corner, and the first Detroit Lions Preseason game is only 49 days away. The Lions new and (hopefully) improved coaching staff will take a longer and harder look at their current roster than they ever did before, and players who found themselves sitting on the bench last year will get a fresh start.

A total of 90 players will be battling it out for the final 53 spots on the roster. Blood, sweat and tears will shed, tensions will be running high, and coaches will be pushing players to their limits to pick and choose their favorites and shape the final depth chart.

Here are the top five position battles in which you can look forward to during this year’s Detroit Lions Training Camp.

    I think K Moore has a good chance to take over the 2nd string QB position before the preseason is over. I base this on the following: 1) K Moore is in his third year and should have continued to improve and develop, 2) if possible he should have improved his arm strength some at this point because this is the main thing holding him back, 3) K Moore looked good last year in practices and preseason and should look even better this year, 4) K Moore will pick up the new playbook fast and should fit well in a New Orleans style playbook, 5) the coaches are likely to quickly like him because of his outstanding strengths, work ethic, knowledge of being a QB and ability to learn and develop, 5) If Caldwell is concerned about Moore’s lack of season NFL game experience, he needs to study K Moore’s career and he will see a QB who is very consistent and steps up in pressure or new situations, poised in the pocket, consistently makes good decisions/minimizes mistakes, is actually experienced beyond most QBs his age and level, having played in 53 college games and being a QB and being in a football environment with his dad as a coach since he could walk and will be more than ready if called on to play in a season NFL game, and 6) Orlovsky is at the end of his career and may not be willing to work as hard as he needs to or be as focused as he needs to in order to outplay Moore.
