You can however trade a defense prospect picked in the first round for something else, if you have so many quality defense prospects that you cannot reasonably expect to bring nearly all of them through or give them the openings needed to make the valuable assets. We have that situation already.

If the staff trusted to determine BPA were to suggest that Sustr is just as promising and likely to be useful for the Pens as X,Y or Z prospect on our farm and you could sign him for nothing, then why not do that and flip another D-asset to get something we are more in need of?
