With the Philadelphia Eagles finally executing the Carson Wentz trade on Thursday, let’s take an updated look at their future picks in the NFL Draft.

The Eagles are now projected to have NINE selections this year.


1 - Eagles’ own pick (No. 6)

2 - Eagles’ own pick (No. 38)

3 - Eagles’ own pick (No. 70)

3 - Acquired from the Indianapolis Colts (No. 85)

5 - Eagles’ own pick

5 - Acquired from the Dallas Cowboys

6 - Eagles’ own pick

6 - Projected compensatory pick (Jordan Howard)

7 - Eagles’ own pick


  • The Eagles received the Colts’ third-round pick in the Wentz trade.
  • Four picks in the top 85 this year represent an avenue for the Eagles to rebuild their roster. Now, if only there was more confidence in Howie Roseman making the right selections!
  • The Eagles are missing their fourth-round pick due to the (regrettable) Genard Avery trade.
  • The Eagles received the Cowboys’ fifth-round pick during a draft-day deal last year that helped Dallas trade up to select Tyler Biadasz.
  • NFL compensatory picks haven’t been officially announced yet so there isn’t a guarantee they’ll have an extra sixth-round pick. But there’s a decent chance they will since Over The Cap’s projections are usually accurate.
  • The Eagles were originally set to receive two additional compensatory picks before Over The Cap’s recent projection indicated otherwise.


1 - Eagles’ own pick

2 - Eagles’ own pick

2 - Acquired from the Indianapolis Colts (conditional)*

3 - Eagles’ own pick

4 - Eagles’ own pick

5 - Eagles’ own pick

6 - Eagles’ own pick

7 - Eagles’ own pick


  • *Pick becomes a first-round selection if Carson Wentz 1) plays 75% of the Colts’ 2021 snaps ... OR ... 2) plays 70% of the Colts’ snaps AND the Colts make the playoffs.
  • Wentz’s snap count by season: 99.5% in 2016, 77.9% in 2017, 66.3% in 2018, 98.6% in 2019, and 79% in 2020. There’s a reasonable chance the Eagles will end up get the Colts’ 2022 first-round pick.
  • The Eagles might be adding more picks to 2021 and/or 2022 with more trades potentially on the way. Zach Ertz, Jason Kelce, and Darius Slay are among those who could be sensibly dealt.
