We should trade our first rounder next year

In my opinion this is the most crucial draft of the Andy Reid era since his first when he nailed the top pick and brought Donovan in. We need to come out of this draft with some serious defensive talent if we want to contend for a superbowl in the next 3 years. This draft is deep on defense and I think this is the one year where we should break with our modus operandi and trade future picks to move up or acquire picks.

I would gladly use next year's first to move up for Brandon Graham, who is the type of relentless DE we need opposite T-Cole. I would use it to move up for a few players who will go above #24. I would use it to get another high second and take any number of defensive backs.

In my opinion we could come away with a massive defensive rejuvination if we were willing to trade next year's first, we could get 3 or 4 truly impact rookies and still have low round picks to fill depth and try to find sleepers. Next year's draft won't have so many talented defenders.
