Sio Moore Could Become Face of the Oakland Raiders

Third round pick Sio Moore has the makings of the next great Oakland Raiders linebacker. I’m not even talking about potential greatness that we will see in a few years, I believe Sio Moore will become one of the Raiders best defenders  from the very first snap against the Indianapolis Colts (If his toe injury keeps him out week one, it will be against the Jaguars). Even when it...

Raiders rookie Sio Moore impresses early

At 6-foot-1, 240 pounds, Oakland rookie linebacker Sio Moore is far from an ideal matchup to put his hand down and rush against a 300-plus pound NFL offensive tackle. Moore is not one to back away from any challenge and relishes the role the Raiders are using him in for certain passing situations. A third-round pick from Connecticut who immediately proclaimed he was the best linebacker...

Sio Moore impressive at Raiders camp, penciled in as starter

Sio Moore was one of my favorite LB prospects this year because of his versatility. As I followed him through the draft process I was amazed at how underrated he was. In a UCONN defense that has produced some very solid NFL talent Moore stood out. His ability to rush the passer combined with his coverage ability is very rare for such a young player. He’s a good enough pass rusher...

State of the Nation: Breaking Down the Oakland Raiders’ Linebackers

The Oakland Raiders linebacker unit might be the most improved position on the team. While the Raiders did lose solid contributor Philip Wheeler they have improved on skill and depth at every level of the unit. The biggest addition was by subtraction, epic bust and head case, Rolando McClain was finally cut by the team before he retired. The additions of veterans Nick Roach, Kevin...

Oakland Raiders Draft OLB Sio Moore In The 2013 NFL Draft

3.04 Oakland Raiders Sio Moore, OLB, Connecticut (6-1, 245) With the 4th pick of the third round of the NFL draft, the Raiders selected OLB Sio Moore out of the University of Connecticut. This pick represents great mid-round value for Oakland as Moore excelled at the combine and pro day, which should help bolster the depth in the Raiders’ linebacking corp. Moore is a solid, sure...

Tale of the Tape: Sio Moore

When the Raiders took Sio Moore with the 66th overall pick in the 2013 draft, former Raiders player and Hall of Famer Willie Brown, who was announcing for the Raiders, gave the pick as “Sio Moore, linebacker, Connecticut.” You can watch the video of the selection, here. However, Moore is not just a linebacker. UConn, who boasted a strong defense in 2012, used him as a...
