No thankyou... awful trade. Draft picks after the 1st round are overrated... 30-50 have just the same chance of being a good player as each other, almost a crapshoot after that.
You wouldn't trade Gervias for a 2nd? Remember the percentage stagnates depending on the strength of the draft. In a weaker draft it might be 13 but a strong draft could bring it up to 25-30. And for a 7th defender that's easily worth it. Also you don't need to use these picks to pick up players. You can package them to move up in the draft.
