I know people will hate this idea but think about it for a minute. With two first we would have the amo to go after a future QB if needed or a Eventual #1 WR to take Johnson's place. We could finally get that second weapon that so many want.
Remember we have 11 picks in this draft. Putting one late first away to boost our future ability to get a top player could be huge for us in the 2014 draft.
I agree on principle, but it doesn't have to be a first round pick that we stash for next season. I wouldn't mind turning a second into a 2014 1st, or parlay a couple of thirds into 2014 seconds.
Surely there's someone we could use at 32.
