Moore honored as top rookie


Outside linebacker Sio Moore was selected to the All-Rookie team by the Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie, it was announced Tuesday.
Moore showed promise from the outset for the Raiders this season, and he made a strong case for being recognized as the most productive rookie of the Raiders draft class.
He notched 55 tackles, recorded 4 1/2 sacks and forced one fumble in 15 games. He projects as a core player for the Raiders defense in the coming years.
Moore joined fellow linebackers Kiko Alonso and Alec Ogletree on the PFWA All-Rookie team. The Raiders selected Moore in the third round out of Connecticut.
