The second day of 2015 NFL Combine drills has arrived. Three groups are scheduled to perform on-field drills today: quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers. The action starts at 9 AM EST and will be aired on NFL Network. Click here for a full list of the workouts and combine participants. The Philadelphia Eagles could definitely show some interest in these positions.

Quarterbacks - [Position Review]

Did you know that Marcus Mariota used to play for Chip Kelly while at Oregon? I'm not sure if anyone's really written about that angle yet, so I figured I'd mention it. But seriously, the Eagles could use a quarterback. Even if they go into 2015 with Nick Foles as the starter, Mark Sanchez could leave in free agency and Matt Barkley is a non-factor. Foles is on the last year of his deal so the Eagles would be wise to hedge their bet with a backup plan. Mariota and Brett Hundley are among the most intriguing names.

Running backs - [Position Review]

This is supposedly a very strong running back class. NFL draft analyst Mike Mayock lauded the strength of the position. The Eagles already have a trio of talented rushers in LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles, and Chris Polk. But McCoy wasn't the elite back he was in 2013. His 4.1 yards per carry ranked tied for 24th last season. His 2.09 yards after first contact was a career low for him. He wasn't as elusive as he usually is. The Eagles could look to take advantage of the depth of this class despite not having an immediate need for a rusher. It could be better to get one too early than too late, especially given Kelly's run-heavy offensive identity.

Wide Receiver - [Eagles Position Review]

If the Eagles are able to re-sign Jeremy Maclin, they'll have him along with returning 2014 rookies Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff. The Birds are probably stuck with Riley Cooper's bad contract but that shouldn't prohibit them from taking a talented wide-out if the right player is on the board. The Eagles were looking at speedy wide receivers during the Senior Bowl and Ohio State's Devin Smith could be a good match. He actually compared his game to to Maclin's.
