He was the final Patriots rookie to sign, which means the entire eight-player class is now under contract.

The Patriots traded the 46th, 122nd and 139th picks to the Cincinnati Bengals to move up in Round 2 and select Barmore. He received an impressive 91.3/100 pass rushing grade from Pro Football Focus for his performance at Alabama last season. Barmore also was named the Defensive MVP of the 2021 College Football Playoff National Championship Game.
