Please, someone educate a stupid european like myself about this whole draft system.
They can trade whenever they want. That team just gets the contract with the player. The Broncos just got Peyton Manning so that's why they traded Tebow away.
About the draft picks, yes they can have 2 picks that round as long as they still have their original picks and they don't trade them away.
