Battles brewing for jobs all over Raiders summer camp

NAPA — Here's a quick-hit analysis on competition hot-spots through three days of Raiders training camp and one padded practice:

Quarterback

Matt Flynn has the early endorsement of Dennis Allen and Reggie McKenzie as the starter and has done nothing to lose ground. He's been fairly consistent and error-free. Looks as if he'll understand his limitations and lead the offense.

Terrelle Pryor has improved as a passer. He could be a viable option if Flynn goes down or in some speciality packages given his ability on the perimeter. Tyler Wilson has had some rough moments getting his feet wet. Matt McGloin figures in only in the event of injury.
