Fall practice is nearing for the Texas A&M Aggies. The Aggies begin workouts on Friday, so let's take a glance at some of the key position battles to keep an eye on in the coming weeks:

Quarterback: Jameill Showers, Johnny Manziel, Matt Joeckel
Head coach Kevin Sumlin and offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury did not name a starter coming out of spring drills, which means the competition for the starting quarterback position continues in fall camp. Showers, a 6-foot-2, 219-pound redshirt sophomore appears to be the favorite coming into camp and has the best arm of the trio. Each has their own strengths: Manziel is a playmaker and Joeckel is patient in the pocket and has picked up the offense well.
