PROVO — BYU's spring football practice provided a glimpse to where the team is headed collectively — particularly on offense. Many players rose up, others faded, but all will have a chance to compete anew for spots this coming August when fall practices begin.

Many positions, such as weakside linebacker (Kyle Van Noy), strong safety (Daniel Sorensen) and the top wide receiver spot (Cody Hoffman), are stocked with returning starters who will almost assuredly reprise their roles. Other starting positions, however, will be battled over intensely this fall.

Here's a look at what looks to be the 10 most competitive position battles come fall and the developments at each of those positions coming out of spring.
