Pick Tracker: Eagles still hold two Top-15 selections after this week’s games
Despite wins across the board in Week 15, the Philadelphia Eagles’ draft capital is still looking good heading into the homestretch. After the Eagles’ victory over Washington, they would hold the 11th, 12th, and 23rd picks in the 2022 NFL Draft if the season ended today.
The most important news of the weekend came Saturday, with the Colts’ first-round pick likely conveying. There’s the chance it doesn’t, but the situation in which that occurs is drastically rare. Indy would need to play nearly 20 snaps per game more on offense, and not have Wentz on the field for any of them.
After their win Tuesday, the Eagles sit just outside the NFC playoff picture at 7-7. If they sneak into a wildcard spot, it would send their pick from 12th to almost 20th. Meanwhile, the Dolphins continue their incredible win streak, also sitting at a 7-7 record. It’s not a far-off possibility all three of these teams make the playoffs and Philadelphia ends up with three late first-round picks.
It’ll be a challenging week upcoming for the Colts, but not particularly for the Dolphins or Eagles. Indianapolis travels to Arizona to face the Cardinals on Christmas Day, the Eagles face the Giants on Sunday, and Miami battles New Orleans on Monday night. It doesn’t appear that any of these selections will rise up the boards to end the season, so prepare for a drop-off.
