Agent: Patriots sign sixth-round pick Zach Moore

The Patriots have signed sixth-round draft pick Zach Moore, according to Moore’s agent Blake Baratz.

The 6-foot-6, 285-pound Moore is the first player in the history of Concordia to be drafted. A finalist for the Cliff Harris Division II Player of the Year Award, Moore is a two-time captain who had 33 sacks in 39 college games.

“I think Zach has a real interesting skillset to develop, and I think he will develop,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said shortly after Moore was taken 198th overall. “He’€™s a hardworking guy and he’€™s played very well at the level of (competition) that he was at.

“Obviously, he’€™s going to be playing against a lot better people than he played against. But I think if he works hard and can develop the skills that he has, I definitely think he can be a productive player for us, sure. We’€™re excited to work with all the guys, but I think Zach has a real good set of skills.”

Moore is the first member of New England’s draft class to sign a rookie contract.
