During the Connected Careers mode draft, select the "Pause the Draft" option and select "Make a Pick." Choose the player you want and you'll be advised that you have done so successfully. Return to the paused draft and choose to "Trade Down." Next, go to "Select An Offer" and pick the one that you want. You will return to the paused draft and receive notification that the trade was accepted. Now you should "Resume Draft" and when you do, you will find that you have received the picks you traded for, absolutely free. Make your picks to change the team logo, if needed. You can continue to complete the above process as long as an option remains to trade down. Note: This exploit has been tested offline and may not work online.
