Oakland Raiders Who Could Make the Pro Bowl in 2012: Denarius Moore

The Oakland Raiders went from having a serious dearth of talent at the wide receiver position, to being stacked with young talent that knows how to stretch the field. Perhaps the most exciting young receiver on the Raiders is the second year speedster out of Tennessee, Denarius Moore. After a rookie season in which Moore caught 33 balls for 618 yards and 5 touchdowns, the Raiders are excited to see what he will do in his sophomore year.

Excitement over Moore is nothing new. The fifth round pick was turning heads in his first training camp. His blazing speed was one thing, but the most promising part was that he ran clean routes and showed off great hands. Coaches could not stop remarking that he looked more like a seasoned veteran than a late round rookie. While he did not have a great rookie year, Moore made one thing clear, he has the talents to be a great wide receiver in the NFL.

When the Raiders traded for Carson Palmer, everyone began to see just how great Moore could be. Palmer's arm strength and accuracy on deep throws was much better than his predecessor, Jason Campbell and it did not take long for people around the NFL to realize how dynamic Moore can be. Now that Palmer has a full off season with the Raiders under his belt, he will play much better this season. That implicitly means that his top receiver will as well. Moore certainly has the talent to make the Pro Bowl and could do it as early as his sophomore year.
