KEY POSITION battles, other than quarterback:
1. Safety: Nate Allen and Patrick Chung seem the most likely starters, but Kenny Phillips could unseat either of them if his oft-repaired knee holds up. Brian Dawkins recently noted that Allen is the Eagles' most talented safety, but that his play is inconsistent. And he could be healthier.
2. Offensive line: We've all decided that first-round rookie Lane Johnson is going to start at right tackle. We'll see if Chip Kelly agrees, when camp is complete. I don't think 2011 first-round pick Danny Watkins is without hope of working his way back into a starting spot; he's fighting an uphill battle, but the battle is really just getting started. Todd Herremans can move back and forth between guard and tackle pretty easily, should Watkins emerge as a force. Remember, Herremans became a right tackle at the end of camp in 2011 and played just fine.
