Question for you guys....

Hey guys, need some special assistance on something I couldn't find the answer to.  I know some of you know the NFL rules much better than I do so I'm hoping you can answer.

Okay, say for instance this offseason the Eagles decide to franchise Mike Vick (given the franchise tag is still a viable option under the next CBA, which I presume it will be).  Lets also say some team decides that signing a tagged Vick is worth the extremely hefty price of two first round picks.  Does that mean the Eagles would get that team's 2011 and 2012 first rounders?  What if a team doesn't have a first rounder in 2011.....could they use their 2012 and 2013 firsts?  Or lets say the team has two first rounders in 2011....would they have to give up both of them or could they give up only one of their 2011 firsts and then their 2012 first?

Sorry for asking a goofy question, but I was curious and I couldn't find the answer to this anywhere.  Its never really come up before because I don't recall a franchised player ever being signed by another team.  But at the same time, if Vick keeps on the incredible path he's on, there might be at least some chance that someone could ante two firsts to get him.
