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.

We’ve already looked at the running backs, wide receivers and the tight ends. Next up is the Patriots offensive line. It entered 2014 with many questions, and entering this season there are still questions to be answered with the interior guard positions.

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