A first or second overall is almost always a stud. There are exceptions but they are rare (especially recently).
No it is not very realistic.
The draft has been part of the league for decades and I can think of only one trade, involving the 1st overall, that has seen anything close to that type of payment.
Teams don't package 2 top prospects/players + 3 or 4 first rounders for the first overall.
