How badly do you want a franchise QB?

The Seahawks' season is going well enough that they'll probably have a long jump to deal up for one of the top three QBs in the draft -- probably a longer jump than the team will have the draft ammunition to make. So, what options do they have?

This is just me thinking out loud -- this isn't a rumor or based on anything but my own ideas -- but it seems to me that the only way for Seattle to outbid other teams for a top-5 pick is to include the player equivalent of a top draft pick: an elite, cheap player. Unfortunately, it seems to me we only have three such players, and one (Russell Okung) is a significant health risk. That leaves, as potential trade chips, our safety tandem -- Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. So, my question to you is this: would you deal one of them for a franchise QB prospect, and if so, for whom?
