As most groups wrap up obligatory minicamp and break till late July, there are lots of place battles of notice leaguewide that also want settling.
A number of groups are breaking in new quarterbacks, and listed here are 5 of probably the most intriguing QB battles to observe throughout coaching camp:
Houston Texans: C.J. Stroud vs. Davis Mills
The Texans drafted Stroud to be the face of the franchise, and with the group not anticipated to win many video games, why not give him the reins from Week 1 and let him take his lumps? Stroud has already developed a pleasant rapport with receivers Nico Collins and third-round rookie Tank Dell, and it might solely assist his growth if he’s given a full season to study and develop in Bobby Slowik’s offense as an alternative of holding a clipboard on the sideline.
Reports out of minicamp point out that Stroud has taken the lion’s share of first-team reps — the other of OTAs, the place Mills spent extra time working with the primary group — and the Texans offense flowed higher with Stroud calling the photographs.
