Once again, the Patriots target a former quarterback who has converted to wide receiver and who also happens to be yet another wide receiver who excelled in the three-cone drill. Moe's time of 6.53 seconds was one of the five fastest for a wide receiver at the combine (via NFL.com).
Moe's production dipped over his final three years at Missouri, going from 92 to 54 to 40 receptions from 2010-2012, and from six touchdowns to four to one.
Moe's ability to throw the ball presents an intriguing option for gadget plays, but we said the same thing about Julian Edelman and he's yet to throw an NFL pass. Moe could develop into a solid slot receiver with time.
More on Moe from Russ Lande of NationalFootballPost.com:
He does not have the burst or acceleration needed to separate from defenders on his routes, and his lack of deep speed limit the type of routes he can be productive running. He is able to create space when he's aggressive with defenders coming out of his breaks, but he lacks the natural strength to be a consistent blocker at the POA. Moe will need to make an immediate impact on special teams as a rookie in order to make a final roster, as he does not possess the physical upside to become much more than a backup slot receiver.
The signing was first announced via Moe's official Twitter account.
