The Carson Wentz snap count tracker in Philadelphia is over, as the Indianapolis Colts quarterback reached a threshold that the Philadelphia Eagles front office banked on when they traded him in February. With Wentz playing more than 97% of the Colts' snaps with just three games to play -- he needed only five more snaps in Saturday's win over the New England Patriots to clinch the 75% of the Colts' 2021 regular-season snaps -- the Eagles receive a 2022 first-round pick from the Colts, completing the Wentz trade to Indianapolis this offseason. 

The Eagles received a conditional first-round pick from the Colts in the deal, with some parameters. Philadelphia traded Wentz to Indianapolis in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick and a conditional 2022 first-round pick, which the Eagles received from the Colts if Wentz:

  • Plays 75% of the snaps in 2021
  • Plays 70% of the snaps in 2021 and the Colts make the playoffs

The Colts are currently 8-6 and in playoff position as the No. 5 seed in the conference -- the top wild card spot. Wentz locked up surpassing the 75% threshold in Week 15. The Colts quarterback has played 854 of the team's 876 snaps this year (97.49%) and Indianapolis is projected to play 1,063 snaps in 2021 -- meaning Wentz will have played 80.3% of the team's projected snaps in 2021 even if he misses the final three games for some reason.

That first-round pick the Eagles receive would currently be a pick of 19th or higher since the Colts are in a playoff position through 15 weeks. Where the Colts finish in the postseason would ultimately determine the Eagles' pick.

Philadelphia has three first-round picks in the 2022 NFL Draft: the first via the Miami Dolphins (currently 10th overall, per Tankathon), their own (11th), and Indianapolis (19 to 32). The Eagles will have plenty of leverage to maneuver around the 2022 draft board, should they choose to do so.
