What Is The Most Important Camp Battle This Preseason?

After going through many of the potential camp battles this offseason, which do you think is most important?

There are a lot of potential camp battles that may take place this offseason and we've gone through a lot of them. They range from backup positions, like backup quarterback, to major contributors like the team's No. 2 receiver, cornerback, strong safety and left guard.

The Bengals are a young and talented team, but they need a boost to take the next step and get beyond the first round of the playoffs and having the right players on the field at the right time can make all the difference. All position battles are important, but which do you think is the most important?

Is it at the No. 2 wide receiver position, which will decide which receiver will line up opposite of A.J. Green to help move the ball down the field through the air? Is it the cornerback position, which could potentially decide whether it's Terence Newman or Dre Kirkpatrick opposite of Leon Hall (we've got our money on Newman, for now)? Is it at backup quarterback, which could be huge if Andy Dalton should go down with injury? How about strong safety, where Shawn Williams could go up against Taylor Mays? Or could could it be at left guard, if Travelle Wharton is healthy enough to challenge Clint Boling for a starting spot?
