The Philadelphia Eagles traded two of their Day 3 picks in the 2021 NFL Draft in exchange for one Day 3 pick from the Washington Football Team in the 2022 NFL Draft. This much was first reported by Martin Frank and Nicki Jhabvala. (CORRECTION: We accidentally listed the Eagles’ trade with the Seattle Seahawks, the original Washington football team. Fixed now. Thank you.)
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES RECEIVE
2022 fifth-round pick
WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM RECEIVE
2021 sixth-round pick (No. 225)
2021 seventh-round pick (No. 240)
This is a good trade for the Eagles, in my opinion. We had previously talked about having six picks between 189 and 240 was too much quantity over quality. Picking up a pick one round higher in next year’s class, which is expected to be deeper than this year’s draft, is a quality move. Especially when the Eagles are still set to make nine picks this year.
The Eagles are now projected to have 10 picks in the 2022 NFL Draft.
EAGLES 2022 PICKS
1 (from Miami Dolphins)
2 (from Indianapolis Colts, could turn into a 1)*
5 (from Washington Football Team)
*In order to be elevated to a first-round pick, Carson Wentz must play at least 75% of the Colts’ snaps in 2021 … OR … Wentz must play at least 70% AND the Colts must make the playoffs.
