hmm, still not convinced.

I think, for the 17th, you either give back a pick in the early 20's + a late 2nd/early 3rd (depending on how early 20's you give) OR two early to mid-2nd rounders.

15-40 might somehow be interchangeable (I doubt that), but a 31st + 2 picks in the 60-90 range is just not enticing enough to give the 17th overall.
