Have Raiders Found A Gem In WR Moore?

Denarius Is Turning Heads

It’s no secret the Raiders are lacking a clear-cut No. 1 wide receiver.

Yet, with that said, the team has a talented group of playmaking pass catchers in place.

The ability of this promising crew could prove the absence of a true go-to guy irrelevant.

One of these receivers, is raising eyebrows and making a case to start along with the scintillating sensational Jacoby Ford.

His name is: Denarius Moore.  The fifth-round draft choice out of Tennessee is making headlines and looks more like a top-ten pick than Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Quarterback Jason Campbell has found it “effortless” to praise Moore:

“He immediately caught my eye,” Campbell said this week. “I said ‘we need to get some plays for this kid.’ From the first day, it was effortless for him.”

The Raiders starting signal caller also referred to the Tennessee product as “smooth” when describing the rookie wideout:

“The game isn’t too big for him,” Campbell said. “He’s been just as good in games as he has in practice. Again, the word that comes up most to me is ‘effortless.’ He’s just so smooth for a rookie.”

Even head coach Hue Jackson sees something special in the former Volunteer:

“He’s been tremendous,” Oakland coach Hue Jackson said. “He belongs.”

Maybe the smooth and effortless first-year pro drafted in the fifth round, will give the Silver & Black what they expected from the third-year guy drafted seventh overall.

Time to see who belongs and who doesn’t belong on the field, catching throws from Campbell starting Week one in Denver.
