Week 4 of the NFL season offered another opportunity to track 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 25-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans, Carson Wentz again logged the majority of the team’s snaps in Week 4.

Wentz was 24-32 for 228 yards and two touchdowns.

More important, Wentz logged every offensive snap, and the Colts won, keeping them in the playoff hunt.

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, and today in Week 4 against Miami, the quarterback logged 100&

Through 4 weeks of action, Wentz has played close to 98% of the teams’ snaps despite the weekly stress of potential injury concerns.

If the season ended today, both the Colts (1-3) and Dolphins (1-3) would be among teams right outside of the Jaguars (0-4), for the No. 1 overall pick. As the Eagles continue to retool and build around Jalen Hurts, they’ll have a nice package of assets to build with.
