Oakland Raiders Training Camp 2011: Is Denarius Moore the Best Player on the Raiders?

Denarius Moore is something special.

When I saw the way Moore moved in the pre-season game against the Cardinals, it reminded me of the first time I saw DeSean Jackson when he was a freshman at Cal. I am not saying that Moore is the next DeSean Jackson, but he has that same impressive ability to make the first guy miss and the speed to make him pay for missing.

At first, I held back from actually making this comment to anyone because I knew that I would come across as an overzealous fan. Something that is entirely possible considering the Oakland Raiders’ struggles in recent years. I feel comfortable revealing my feelings now because I am not the only person to think that Denarius Moore really could be a special talent.

Steve Corkran of the Oakland Tribune had this to say about Moore in training camp:

Every day, Moore not only is the best wide receiver on the field, oftentimes he is the best player, period. It has reached the point where this isn’t some one-week wonder, flash in the pan or fluke. The man can flat out play.Denarius Moore is something special.

For a rookie picked in the fifth round to make any positive impression in training camp is difficult. For him to be called the best player on the field is beyond impressive. The word is out, Denarius Moore is something special.

As the preseason goes on, we will get to see just how special he is. Moore’s performance against the Cardinals has forced Hue Jackson’s hand, he must get the ball into this kid’s hands and see exactly what he can do. Moore could very well be making an argument to be a starter as rookie and the only way to see if he is the real deal is to get him involved early in games when the first team defense is still on the field.
