The Carolina Panthers signed first-round draft choice wide receiver D.J. Moore, the club announced Monday.

Carolina has now signed all eight of its 2018 draft choices.

Under the current collective bargaining agreement, Moore’s four-year deal should be worth about $11.2 million, with a $6.2 million signing bonus, the Charlotte Observer reported.

Moore, who was selected by Carolina with the 24th overall pick, played collegiately at Maryland. He earned Big Ten Receiver of the Year honors in 2017 after setting a single-season school record for receptions with 80.

Moore posted 1,033 receiving yards and eight touchdowns, becoming just the third wide receiver in school history to have a 1,000-yard receiving season.

Moore started 35 of the 37 games he played and finished fifth in school history in career receptions (146), sixth in receiving yards (2,027) and fourth in receiving touchdowns (17).
