    With NFL training camps underway, we check in on a few key position battles around the league including NFL rookies. (2014 projections for rookies are based on this analysis which projects rookie seasons for all NFL prospects as if they were starters on average NFL teams).



    In the lead up to the release of our 2014 NFL Preview, we look at some of the most prominent clashes occurring in NFL training camps.

    The 2014 NFL Preview will be available on August 6th.

    Tennessee Titans – Running Back competition

    Incumbent: Shonn Greene
    2013 Stats – 295 rushing yards, 4 rushing TDs, 39 receiving yards, 0 receiving TDs

    After averaging 5.0 yards per carry his rookie season, Greene's average has steadily declined. Greene missed OTAs recovering from a second knee surgery and it has been suggested that the power back is one of the Titans' biggest question marks heading into the season.

    Challenger: Dexter McCluster
    2013 Stats – 5 rushing yards, 0 rushing TDs, 511 receiving yards, 2 receiving TDs

    McCluster is not a real threat to steal rushing attempts; the former Chief has totaled 20 rushing attempts over the last two seasons. McCluster is expected to see playing time as a receiver and on special teams.

    Challenger: Bishop Sankey
    2014 Projections – 1,034 rushing yards, 262 receiving yards, 9 total TDs

    Expectations are high, especially in the fantasy community, for the first running back taken in the 2014 draft. The University of Washington product rushed for 1,870 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior. Sankey is currently being drafted in the eighth round ahead of former Titans running back Chris Johnson.

    Sankey (9/1) has the best odds among running backs to win the Rookie of the Year award. However, Sankey was only the 12th best back in our rankings entering the draft.
