With training camp approaching, the anticipation for the 2014 NFL season is growing rapidly. The San Diego Chargers have already built off its overachieving 2013 season by adding a promising young cornerback, a sack specialist and a strong nose tackle in the draft; revamping its cornerback talent with free agent acquisitions; and most importantly adding depth (and speed) to nearly every position.

As depth creates competition, we will take a look at one of the most intriguing position battles that could make-or-break the Chargers: the nose tackle position.
