Pick Tracker: Eagles own three picks in top 15, Colts selection close to conveying
While it was a tough weekend on the field for the Philadelphia Eagles, their draft capital rose up the boards after losses from the Eagles and Indianapolis Colts. Miami continues to win, but their draft pick remains in the top ten. As it stands, the Eagles own the 9th, 10th, and 14th picks in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Philadelphia sits in 9th after an embarrassing loss to the New York Giants in the Meadowlands. Meanwhile, Indy played great against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but lost at home 38-31. Cam Newton had his worst game this season against the Miami Dolphins, leading to a massive win by Miami, 33-10.
That Colts first-rounder is almost guaranteed to land in Philadelphia this offseason, with Wentz having played 70% of his expected snaps in 2021 per @WentzSnaps. The Eagles need Carson Wentz to play 75% of his snaps in 2021 or 70% and make the playoffs. The best scenario is two to three more starts and a missed playoff berth.
Zach Wilson returned for New York, likely meaning that Joe Flacco pick will be a 6th rounder instead of a 5th. The Dolphins are on a hot streak, winning four straight, the second-longest streak in the NFL.
This week, the Colts travel to Houston to face the Texans, with a loss not very likely for Indianapolis. The Eagles are back in New York against the Jets while Miami hosts the Giants. A Miami win would help in the division but hurt the Eagles’ draft capital. But in the grand scheme of things, their pick selections are looking good.
