How very true. And the only likely way to get one is through the draft. There's no way to trade for someone of that quality - well, maybe if the team you're trading with is in cap hell, is losing, and is a bit fed up with their star player. And even then it will cost 2 first rounders and a second rounder.

The only player-for-draft-picks trade that actually netted a blockbuster player (that I can remember) was when Green Bay gave up a first round for Brett Favre. That cost a first round pick, but was only so cheap because he was Atlanta's third choice QB and a bit of a hellraiser. They didn't know how good he was.
