I figure any changes would be implemented for the 2098 draft. Not this up coming one. So those of us ineligible (me) will still be ineligible.

You can't take both because then you are always going to be safe from the rule. Would you only take the higher pick of the 2? I would think that could be abused though. I dunno. Would have to ask andujar I guess.
First step would be to figure out how we want to distribute points for picks. All the way through 1-16 or just to the top-5 or top-10?
But there would be three options.First:
Only your pick counts against you.
So if you traded for the #1 and your team owns the #16 in a single year, only the #16 counts against you. The loophole to this is that you could trade up for picks and not be penalized for collecting them year after year, a complaint against the current system.Second:
Only your best pick counts against you.
So if you traded for the #1 and your team owns #16 in a single year, only the #1 counts against you because it is your best pick. Third:
Both picks count against you.
So if you traded for the #1 and your team owns the #16 in a single year, both count against you. To really consider this . The loophole is for a rebuilding team to collect later first round picks to inflate their point total to allow them to continue making early picks. Same if you made it an average of your picks.
I think with those three options the second is really the only one without a major loophole that I can see at this point.The team trading picks away:
This needs to be considered too. I'd argue that teams that trade picks away shouldn't have any picks counting against them. It provides an added value to trading top picks away when players are under penalty because they can trade them to reduce penalty in future years. But still thinking through how that would work all the way around.
