It's possible, but I wonder if the plan isn't to say trade down from the OTT 2nd next year to a lower 2nd and a 3rd at the draft to re-coup at least one of those picks (maybe both).
That strikes me as something that'd be tough to plan for without knowing where the pick will end up. If Ottawa's pick is in the 45-50 range then you probably can't pick up an extra third for trading down.
I still think the best course of action might be to wait and see how this years deadline/draft and next years deadline go before giving back the picks. It also might be best for the re-build to have those guys/picks in the system that one year earlier for developments sake and the future core's "window". That's just a gut feeling though.
