So here we are, mere hours away from the kickoff of the final preseason game and the storylines continue to swirl around the Eagles organization. Will Vick be able to play before week six? Who wins the starting free safety position? Will certain Eagles entice the Jets into a trade? The list goes on, and the game is sure to keep fans' eyes glued to the screen. Here is a brief rundown of what to look for at each position.

Quarterback: How will Kevin Kolb perform in his first preseason start this year? Also, will Michael Vick get a chance to showcase his superstar moves with a big play or two?

Running Back: In his last chance to make the team over Lorenzo Booker, will Eldra Buckley sink or swim?

Fullback: Can RFA Marcus Mailei build upon last game's touchdown and crack the final roster?

Tight End: Will the newly acquired Tony Curtis garner enough playing time to give the coaching staff a decent look at his ability?

Wide Receiver: In the intense battle between Reggie Brown, Hank Baskett, and Brandon Gibson for the final two receiver slots, who will emerge victorious?

More after the jump...

Left Tackle: Can King Dunlap use his immense size to effectively protect Kolb's blindside?

Left Guard: With Todd Herremans still out, will rookie Fenuki Tupou be able to make a significant push for a roster spot?

Center: Will RFA Dallas Reynolds impress in what could very well be his last game as an Eagle?

Right Guard: Can Mike Gibson or Paul Fanaika convince the coaches they're worth keeping on the active roster?

Right Tackle: Will Winston Justice make the most of his significant playing time?

Left Defensive End: Can Jason Babin continue his impressive performance and crack the final roster?

Defensive Tackle: Not much has bee heard out of Josh Gaines since his interception during Flight Night. Will he make some noise tonight?

Right Defensive End: Can second-year man Bryan Smith build on his first ever interception during last week's game?

Weakside Linebacker: Will Tracy White return from his injury and continue his good special teams play, or perhaps nab another interception?

Middle Linebacker: Will this be the last time Matt Wilhelm is seen in an Eagles uniform?

Strongside Linebacker: Can rookie Moise Fokou really go from seventh-round pick to number two SAM?

Left Cornerback: Will Dimitri Patterson shore up his position as the fifth CB with good coverage against the Jets' receiving corps?

Right Cornerback: This is the last chance for Jack Ikegwunou to make the active roster. Will he be "redshirted" on IR for another year if he can't produce?

Strong Safety: Will Reshard Langford play well enough to earn a spot on the practice squad?

Free Safety: With the free safety spot up for grabs, can Sean Jones become an NFL starter once again?

Kicker: Can David Akers raise his fantasy stock with a few good long field goals?

Punter: Will Sav Rocca and the punt unit be able to contain talented return man Leon Washington?
