The Patriots are a team full of veterans, most of whom are well-entrenched. But come training camp next week, there are a few spots that remain up in the air. Here’s a look at five position battles we’ll be watching when camp opens next Thursday in Foxborough.

With less than a week before rookies are scheduled to report for training camp, the Patriots have nine of their 12 draft picks in the fold. But even though all dozen aren’t yet present and accounted for, according to league sources, there is real optimism that they’ll all be ready to go when needed.

The Patriots continue to sign draft picks at a rapid rate, as it was learned Thursday three more members of the 2009 draft class have agreed to contracts and two others are likely just days from signing deals of their own.

Making snap judgments based on a few spring workouts isn’t good football business. But after watching 10 spring practices involving the Patriots over the last six weeks -- four at rookie minicamp, four at the organized team activities (OTAs) and two at full-squad minicamp -- we know a lot more about the team than we did in the days following the draft.
