With the 198th pick in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the New England Patriots have made a selection, taking defensive end Zach Moore out of Concordia University St. Paul (the first player ever selected from this school)

Team Needs:

TE  |  DT |  DE |  LB | OG/C | S | RBQB

Thoughts: The Patriots went into this draft needing another pass rusher.  Moore could compete in that area, but is a versatile piece who can play multiple spots on the line and who has great length and athleticism.

Patriots Draft Picks:

Round 1, Pick 29: Dominique Easley, DL, Florida

Round 2, Pick 62: Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois

Round 4, Pick 105: Brian Stork, C, Florida State

Round 4, Pick 130: James White, RB, Wisconsin

Round 4, Pick 140 (Compensatory): Cameron Fleming, OT, Stanford

Round 6, Pick 179: Jon Halapio, G, Florida

Round 6, Pick 198 (via Philadelphia): Zach Moore, DE, Concordia St. Paul

Round 6, Pick 206: Today

Round 7, Pick 244: Today

Instant Grade: B-

Moore is a sleeper who played at Division II Concordia St. Paul.  He's not a pure pass rusher, and can play multiple spots.  He might not make the final roster, but this late in the draft, why not take a shot in the dark on a player who most already saw as draftable?

We'll have more on the selection soon. What do you think of the Patriots' pick? Leave your thoughts below!
