With Patriots training camp opening on Wednesday, there’s a number of questions the team needs to answer before the start of the season. From position battles to individual development, it should be an eventful few weeks.

As we did last year, it’s time to take a look at the biggest question facing each player as camp begins. Some of these storylines will carry into preseason games, and all the way up to roster cuts.

You’ll notice a lot of these questions involve players playing out of position. With such a competitive roster, positional versatility could be the key decider when it comes to a handful of bubble players. The Patriots generally move guys around during camp, but we could see more than usual this year.

Because this would run about 40,000 words if each question was expanded on, just one player per position is highlighted.

Note: Players are listed alphabetically by position, with the focus player at the top.
