The Patriots head into training camp in just a few weeks and there should be plenty of competition at a number of spots. As a lead-in to the beginning of camp, we’ll break down the positions and give our take on who is a lock, a near lock for the 53 man roster and who is on the bubble.

Bill Belichick likes to say that the spring is a learning exercise and that the competition begins in training camp. While that is true to an extent, with 88 players on board, 35 of these current members of the roster now, at a minimum will be cut.

Next up is the wide receivers, going into last season, the position was a bunch of question marks, but with 2015 approaching, the starting three are pretty much of a lock. The only questions are who makes the team, who gets the practice squad and who gets the gate.

So who’s locked in and who’s on the bubble?
