The Baltimore Ravens start their preseason football with a game against the San Francisco 49ers.  The Preseason is great for position battles and to see who really has that it factor.  Here are five players to watch to see how they play. 

1.  Joe Flacco:  See how Flacco does in the new Gary Kubiak offense.  Word is that Flacco is pick it up well but this is the first time he will be in game action with it.  Flacco will likely only play a quarter so we will see a small sample size.

2.  Rick Wagner:  Wagner is playing for a starting offensive line job.  The line has to be better than it was last year and it will be interesting to see how Wagner does.  It will not be a good sign if Wagner is overwhelmed.

3.  C.J. Mosley:  This is the first game that we will get to see Mosley playing in a Ravens uniform.  Mosley will be starting at middle linebacker and could play more than the normal starters.  It will be exciting to see the Ravens first-round pick in action.

4.  Chykie Brown: Brown is fighting for the nickle corner position with Asa Jackson, another player you should watch.  Brown has had his ups and downs at camp so it will be interesting to see how he does.  Brown has all the talents to play in the NFL.

5.  Ray Rice:  Rice is coming off his worst season and will be suspended the first two games of the season.  It will be interesting on how he plays and how much he has left in the tank.  Rice could be in the bidding for the Comeback Player of the Year if he rebounds this season.
