No future picks or current nfl players are being allowed to be used, and with good reason I think. I think if you don't want to accumulate later round picks b/c you can't use them (in this draft) then don't trade down. But texanseminole, I agree to an extent, some people may not care if they give up their 4th through 7th round picks in total... so in that sense it could be unrealistic.
Nice selection with Sintim, he should be a great fit as a 3-4 LB.
In regards to trading picks being unrealistic may I remind yall of the Ricky Williams trade.
I needed to trade up to get my OLB before other 3-4 teams were up and to make the deal fair I gave up a 4th and a 6th. Doesnt mean I cant trade down in the 3rd and get back a 6th or something.
Also I think when we are done with the three rounds, people will take into account the fact that you accumulated extra picks as well.
