Perhaps I am getting a bit too creative here, but I can see something like this occurring: The Patriots trade the seventh overall pick to Dallas for the 22nd and 28th overall picks. The Patriots trade the 22nd overall pick to the 49ers for their 2009 first round pick. The 49ers move ahead of the Titans for their choice of wide receivers. The Patriots trade the 28th overall pick to the Falcons for their second-round pick from the Texans and their 2009 second-round pick. The Patriots take CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and RB Steve Slaton in the second round. In the third round, the Patriots take LB Philip Wheeler and S Jamar Adams. My whole take on this is that the Patriots really don't value any of the "top talent" in this draft. They trade out of this year's first round, get what should be decent first and second round picks in next year's draft, and still get four very, very solid players. I believe that Rodgers-Cromartie is as good as any of the corners in this year's draft. Slaton will be a great Faulk-style back with loads of talent. Wheeler is a smaller, faster linebacker who reminds me a lot of Tedy Bruschi. Jamar Adams is a good safety who may be a bit of a project, but good nonetheless.
