Week 6 of the NFL season offered another opportunity to track former Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz and the Miami Dolphins as Philadelphia looks to snag three high first-round picks this spring.

When the Eagles traded Wentz in the offseason, the team received a conditional second-round rounder in 2022 that would become a first-round pick if the quarterback takes 75% of the Colts’ regular-season offensive snaps or 70% if they make the playoffs.

We’re tracking the quarterback snaps as Philadelphia marches towards a third first-round pick.

A week after playing 100% of the Colts snaps in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Wentz again logged every snap against the Texans, going 11-20 passing for 223 yards and 2 touchdowns.

In the Week 2 loss to the Rams, Wentz logged 62 of a possible 67 snaps, playing 93% of the Colts snaps. In Week 1, 3, 4,5, and this afternoon in Week 6 against Houston, the quarterback logged 100.

Through 6 weeks of action, Wentz has played close to 98% of the teams’ snaps despite the weekly stress of potential injury concerns.

According to Tankathon, if the season ended today, the Dolphins (1-5) would be among teams tied with the Jaguars (1-5), for the No. 2 overall pick behind the winless Lions. The Colts would pick at No. 8 overall and as the Eagles (No. 7) continue to retool and build around Jalen Hurts, they’ll have a nice package of assets to build with.
