Should the Colts trade away their 1st round pick?

With the last two drafts having a record amount of underclassmen declaring, (2011 had 56, 2012 had 65, both records at the time) is it possible that this years crop of players is worth skipping over?

This year has no consensus #1 pick, and in the opinion of many draft experts very few blue chip players, with most of the talent in this years draft being in the top 10. And with the Colts at #24 and no 2nd round pick it'd be almost impossible to move. So why should the Colts decide the fate of a position on a player who could potentially be 2nd round talent next year? If you look at the players being mocked where they are, it's actually pretty similar to the 2002 draft (regarded as the weakest draft in the past 12 years) in that the talent level is similar with a surplus of linemen and a lack of skill players in the first round.

Trading this years 1st round pick for a future First round pick to me is the best option for the Long Term Future if the franchise. With 5 GM's being let go this year, many could be interested in building through the draft, also a team in Cap Hell like the lions should be interested in signing a low salary player to replace it's many needs. The Colts have $40+ million and could potentially fill most of their needs via free agency. I think Grigson knows this and might be shopping the pick as we speak.
