A first round pick is something that might get traded for salary cap relief, not an elite prospect.
Also, flipping a near ready past pick/prospect for a comparable future one would be a delay -- read, 'Cap easement' -- of a potential higher contract hitting the books, at a period when there is a huge Cap problem... Buys time to get the Cap in better shape, if that is in fact possible with falling Revenue/Cap Limit.
