Raiders Rookie Sio Moore Impresses Early

[1]NAPA, Calif. (AP) — 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 in the draft after his selection, Moore does not lack for confidence or enthusiasm as evidenced by the way he tried to fire up the home crowd in the exhibition opener.

Those traits are quickly making him a fan favorite in Oakland as the polar opposite of former first-round bust Rolando McClain, who previously wore the No. 55 jersey.
