The Patriots have made it a point to overhaul their receiver group this offseason. The acquired veterans Danny Amendola, Donald Jones and Michael Jenkins via free agency. They also added Marshall's Aaron Dobson and TCU's Josh Boyce in the draft. But the new additions didn't stop there.

After the draft, the Patriots signed two more undrafted free-agent receivers, Cincinnati's Kenbrell Thompkins and Missouri's TJ Moe.

Moe is an interesting name because of his performance at this year's NFL Combine. He ran a 4.74 40-yard dash -- not fast for a guy at his position -- but he was the top receiver in the 225-pound bench press (26 reps), the three-cone drill (6.53 seconds), the 20-yard shuttle (3.96 seconds) and the 60-yard shuttle (10.87 seconds).

Moe's best season at Missouri was actually his sophomore year when he caught 92 passes for 1,045 yards and six touchdowns. His production was scaled back in his next two seasons -- he caught 54 balls as a junior and 40 as a senior -- but he continuously showed strong hands and an ability to run good routes.

Check out some of Moe's highlights above and let us know if you think he has a chance to make the team in 2013.
