The Indianapolis Cols shipped Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders for three draft picks. Along with their new quarterback, Washington is getting a bit more than originally thought.

ESPN's Adam Schefter, who first reported the swap Wednesday, provided an update on the compensation package Thursday morning.

As initially reported, the Colts will receive a 2022 second-round pick (No. 42), a 2022 third (No. 73), and a 2023 conditional third. The conditional third elevates to a second-round choice if Wentz plays 70 percent of Washington's snaps on offense this year.

A similar stipulation backfired for the Colts, who are giving the Philadelphia Eagles the 16th pick in this year's draft instead of a second-round choice after Wentz played over 75 percent of the Colts' snaps in 2021.

Washington, in addition to Wentz and this year's No. 47 pick, will also get an upcoming seventh-rounder.

Indianapolis has consecutive seventh-round selections at No. 236 and 237, the latter of which comes from Philadelphia. Schefter didn't specify which one is going to Washington.

It's hardly a seismic shift, but you never know. Julian Edelman, Shannon Sharpe, Donald Driver, Jim Ringo, and Larry Wilson are among the game's most notable seventh-round picks.

The Commanders get one more dart throw to close the draft, giving them six picks this year.
