my leagues no longer allow trading in the off season of non-keepers because of this very reason. Trading a potential 1st round pick player that you wouldnt keep for a 2nd; you get something for nothing, and he gets something for cheaper than he should. It shouldnt exist.
That said, if your league allows, take advantage of it.
