GMs love 1st and 2nd rounders because they want the chance at getting a talent at a fraction of the cost. To have a successful team that can stay successful, you need cheap talent and the way to do that is the draft. If you trade away all your top of the draft picks for Free Agents or proven commodities, you can't afford to keep that team under the cap and competitive.

Trading a 1st rounder for Mike Wallace would be a no brainer. It would take more than a 1st rounder though. It would take a 1st and a 4th probably.
Since 1st rounders are now approximately half or less the cost of what they were a few years ago, their value has (rightfully) skyrocketed.

And Mike Wallace cannot, and will not cost more than a 1st rounder unless the Steelers sign him to a new contract. Franchise and Restricted tenders do not cost more than a 1st rounder to sign to a contract anymore.
