Areas of interest at Patriots camp

By Mike Reiss

The Patriots' first training camp practice will have a different feel from past years. There will be no full-pad practice and there will be a larger number of players not on the field because of the post-lockout timeline.

With this in mind, here are some of the things that I'll be watching for today as the Patriots have their first practice open to the public, which are detailed more in this story posted on ESPNBoston.com:

1. Left tackle & Nick Kaczur's future with the club
2. Right defensive end
3. Tom Brady
4. Recovery of Leigh Bodden and Alge Crumpler
5. Brandon Spikes
6. Young receivers
7. Outside linebacker/rush end
