With their second pick of the sixth round, the New England Patriots have selected defensive end Zach Moore, out of Concordia St. Paul (the first player to ever be selected in the NFL draft from that university).

This fills a need for the Pats, although I don’t know if Moore will make much of an impact with the team in 2014. I don’t know much about Moore, but Mike Loyko, draft expert over at nepatriotsdraft.com, says that Moore is a good sleeper:

This may be all the Pats do to add depth to the defensive end position, as they did sign veteran Will Smith before the draft began. I now see the Pats remaining needs as tight end, wide receiver, inside linebacker, and safety. I honestly think New England may end up simply adding to the tight ends via free agency, where guys like Dustin Keller are still available.

The Pats next pick is the 30th pick of the sixth round, which is the 206th overall pick of the draft.

    I’m sure these guys will help the team. Maybe not all that much this year but some help is better than none. Its
    a process of rebuilding, now if Gronk come’s back that will help a lot. He has to stay healthy, he plays with such abandon that he is constantly being hurt. Of course the other loss is Aaron Hernandez. But I bet Bill will come
    through and surprise us again, look what he did last year with a patched up team. I feel bad about Tom being 37 this year, I know that sounds funny but the time is coming when we will have a new QB, but “till then ………..
    GO PATS!!!!!
