Why not trade Tate/TJ?

I was reading some thing somewhere about Yates and Tate and for a while it got me thinking. Barring a real big regression in teh Schaub we are set at the QB position for the next 3, 4 years. If we can get Arian signed up for a long term deal we also have a proven first choice RB. Right now our immediate requirement(something that will make the team better from day 1) is at WR, NT, OLB depth and another lock down CB to play opposite JJ.

What if we trade Yates and Tate, get some picks for that(lets say 1 first rounder and 2 second rounders ok let's say 2 second rounders), trade those picks and the picks we have so that we end up with 2 high first rounders and 1 second rounder and go up and pick up a couple of good WRs(round 1 and 2) a NT (in round 1) and a backup RB in round 3 (I am sure with our ZB schemes a 3rd rounder will be able to get some good production).

We will immediately improve the team from day 1 of 2012. We will have a backup QB in Leiniart, a backup RB in the new guy we pick, 2 first round WRs to learn from and eventually replace AJ and a solid NT to make the defense better.

Do you think it's a good plan? How much value do you think we can get from TJ and Tate? What do you guys think?
