Every team in the NFL has played at least one preseason game and NFL training camps are winding down, but there are plenty of storylines across the league that bear our attention over the next few weeks.

The 2014 NFL Draft featured a couple of prospects who carried draft grades that put them in rare company and could be future All-Pro players. Their transition to the NFL from college is just one narrative I will be paying close attention to to see if they can adapt.

Other storylines that should be topics of debate will be the quarterback competitions. We have seen a wave of young talent come to the league at the game’s most important position in recent years and play right away. But that trend looks like it could be halted with the recent crop of signal-callers who are trying to climb the depth chart.

The rookie quarterbacks aren’t the only ones to observe over the next few weeks as a number of veteran quarterbacks have looming questions surrounding them. If they can’t answer them this year, their teams will be in for some trouble this year.

Here are the top 10 storylines I’ll be watching closely through the rest of the preseason.
