The question is simple. Vote in our poll.

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

With the 2015 NFL Draft only two days away I thought it would be fun to see what everyone thinks the Eagles are going to do with their first selection. Today's poll focuses on "What position will the Eagles pick first?" and tomorrow's poll will focus more specifically on individual players at that position.

Let's get started by taking a look at the position breakdown via my Eagles Draft Prospect Interest Tracker.

24 WR
20 CB
19 OLB
15 OG
14 TE
14 QB
14 DL
13 ILB
12 OT
11 S
8 RB
4 C
2 P
1 FB

There are a number of options the Eagles could consider at No. 20 overall. Here's a breakdown of each position:

Wide Receiver

The Eagles have shown interest in this position more than any other. It's no secret why; they have a huge need at the position. There are a number of options the team could select with names like Jaelen Strong, Nelson Agholor, Breshad Perriman, Phillip Dorsett, etc. in play.

Cornerback

Yet another position where the Eagles have shown a lot of interest. Byron Jones is the obvious name to watch.

Safety

This year's safety class isn't thought of very highly. Landon Collins is arguably the top player at the position but many think he doesn't fit Philadelphia's defense. Peter King thinks the Eagles could take a different safety in at No. 20.

Offensive Line

The Eagles have a hole on the offensive line after releasing Todd Herremans prior to free agency. Evan Mathis is rumored to be on the trade block so the Eagles could potentially need two new starting guards. Jason Peters isn't getting any young, either.

Quarterback

MARCUS MARIOTA?!!?!?!

Linebacker

The Eagles already have a logjam at inside linebacker but it wouldn't be shocking to see them take an outside linebacker in the first round for the second year in a row. Brandon Graham and Connor Barwin are in place as starters but the depth is questionable. Marcus Smith still needs to prove himself. The Eagles have shown a lot of pre-draft interest in this position.

Defensive Line

The Eagles are already young and deep here so I really can't see it.
