Stocking up for the future?

By trading Randy Moss to the Vikings for a reported third-round draft pick next April, the Patriots now have eight picks in the first two rounds:

First round: their own and Oakland’s (from Richard Seymour trade)
Second round: their own and Carolina’s (from draft-weekend trade this year)
Third round: their own and Minnesota’s (from Moss trade)
Fourth round: their own and Denver’s (from Maroney trade)

Draftniks believe this will be a deep draft — including at wide receiver — and New England has certainly stocked up to be a major player in it.
