You could also argue a healthy OL fares better and you can find Peters replacement elsewhere be it draft or free agency.
At that price? Going from #5 to #1 is a 1300 point difference, the equilivent of the 10th overall pick... that's a lot of value for Foles.
Franchise left tackles don't just pop up in free agency often. They're either old or a huge injury risk going forward if they ever do hit the market.
You need to get better up front. It's not a sexy pick, but it's a winning one.
