Eagles send 6th pick to Miami for 12th pick and future first
The Eagles are moving back. According to reports, Philadelphia has agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins to send the 6th pick for the 12th pick and a 2022 first. Miami acquired the 12th pick from the 49ers just moments before their trade with Philadelphia.
Here are the full trade details:
- 12th pick (via San Francisco)
- Pick 123 (4th rounder)
- 2022 first (via Miami)
- 6th pick
- Pick 156 (5th rounder)
According to Ian Rapaport, Philly moves back after trying to trade up for the third pick, but would only do it if they were guaranteed quarterback Zach Wilson. The Eagles were in a firm position to land superstar wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase before moving back, but several wideout options could still be available including Devonta Smith. It is likely they will be choosing front the likes of Jaylen Waddle, Patrick Surtain, and possibly Micah Parsons.
Following this move, the Eagles will have 11 selections in the 2021 draft and add capital for the future. It is highly disappointing to see the Eagles not select Ja’Marr Chase or Kyle Pitts, but they can still possibly land an elite prospect in Waddle and add another first-round pick. If Carson Wentz starts 75% of the Colts’ snaps this season, the Eagles will add the Colts 2022 first to their stockpile. Hopefully, these picks won’t go to waste and can help the Eagles during the start of their rebuild.
