Trading Draft Picks For A Franchise QB IS NOT "Mortgaging The Future"!!

I've been seeing this statement "Mortgage The Future" about trading draft picks for a QB on the site and in the papers. Omar today says it will take a "King's Ransom" to trade up to get RGIII. That "King's Ransom" is two 1st round picks and two 2nd round picks. So let me get this straight - The Phins would be "Mortgaging The Future" or paying a "King's Ransom" by trading players like Jared Odrick, Mike Pouncey, Koa Misi, and Daniel Thomas (Miami's 1st and 2nd round picks the last two years) for a player like Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, or Tom Brady? I would do that in a heartbeat!!You are only "Mortgaging The Future" if the QB you trade up to get sucks. If the QB is a Franchise QB, then "The Future" couldn't be brighter!!
