Nope. This was one of the things that sprang immediately to mind when the Patriots secured a second first-round pick. I would not be surprised if he is moved between now and day three of the draft.
After losing Sammy Watkins in free agency, it became apparent that Snead wasn't intent with drafting a young receiver.
That gives the Patriots what they need to trade up for a quarterback, if that's what Coach Bill Belichick wants.
New signing Cordarrelle Patterson, Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Riley McCarron, Cody Hollister, Kenny Britt, Malcolm Mitchell are all under contract and should soften the blow of Cook's departure. Recent reports, however, suggest the 28-year-old will be back in a Patriots uniform for 2018. However, his year ended on a low note went he was knocked out of Super Bowl LII with a concussion in the first half.

The market for wide receivers has skyrocketed this offseason. The Patriots will receive the Rams' first- and sixth-round draft picks.
However, if Gronkoswki returns to action this year, he will be playing for the Patriots, who could be able to offer him an improved deal with the money saved by trading Cooks-who was entering the final year of his deal and was due to earn $8.46 million. If Gronkowski is traded, which seems far less likely now that Cooks is gone, the supporting cast on offense could begin to look decidedly lacking. They previously traded for cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib, then signed defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, whom they will introduce to the media Wednesday. The trade puts a lot of pressure on Snead to make this Cooks partnership last, and there is already reportedly interest in extending Cooks' contract.
NY has reportedly asked for multiple first-round picks for Beckham, something New England now possesses. In addition to that, he is also an upgrade over Watkins. Cooks' speed and versatility should fit in well in coach Sean McVay's schemes as he lines up alongside Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp in the NFL's highest-scoring offense last season. And at 24, Cooks is still near the front-end of his prime as one of the star receivers in the league.
The Rams would like to not have a repeat of this past offseason where they lost their top receiver who they had traded for the previous offseason.
