It's a valid question, and not one that I factored in. IMO, the cut off would be draft day in 2013 (and draft day in 2016).

All conditions would have to be met for that 2 year block:

- Choose to lose the 1st rounder in 2013, they will forfeit a 2nd in 2014. If there is multiple 2nds, come the draft in 2014, whichever pick is the highest in the one that is forfeit. If there is no 2nd in 2014, the team risks losing their 1st rounder in 2014 as well and have until the 2014 draft to acquire a 2nd round pick.

- Choose the 1st rounder in 2014, there MUST be a 2nd rounder in 2013 by draft day or else this option is eliminated and the 2013 1st rounder will be forfeited. Then see scenario above. Same rule applies with multiple 2nds as with scenario above.

Same goes for 2016/2017. If the proper conditions aren't met, it is possible the team to lose up to 4 1st rounders instead of 2 1st and 2 2nds. This would force the GM to use his assets wisely.
