Key position battles in Oregon fall camp
August, 7, 2012
By Brandon P. Oliver | ESPN Insider
Jim Z. Rider/US PresswireBryan Bennett is battling for the quarterback spot with Marcus Mariota, who had an impressive spring.Every season comes with roster questions no matter the program. The three-time defending league champion Ducks lost some key pieces after 2011 but there is an abundance of talent waiting in the wings.
Not all of the key position battles involve a departed star, however. There are key returners at every spot on the field. With fall camp kicking off today there are a few key spots up for grabs.
Not being named a starter in Chip Kelly's system is not a dream killer though. Especially on defense, where the Ducks rotate more players than any team in the country.
