That quick glimpse, as it stands, shows it's a lot more complicated than is being made out. They've used plenty of their own ammo to turn pick 43 into that list.
on Jeff Howe's twitter feed there is a graphic of the trades as the full article is behind the Atlantic pay wall and it takes some following but yes we have traded picks to move up for some players but we haven't given up a ton to get the picks and still came out with an extra 2020 4th rounder.

also shows how active Belichick is on draft days 2 and 3.
