Denarius Moore is most frustrating Oakland Raiders player in camp


Oakland Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore was named the most frustrating player in their camp recently by CSN Bay Area. Moore is coming off a fairly solid rookie campaign he caught 51 passes for 741 yards and 7 touchdowns last season. In the preseason so far he has 3 catches for 46 yards and 1 touchdown.

CSN Bay Area writes:

The third-year receiver has all the physical tools to be a star in this league, but his lack of consistency is maddening. He burst onto the scene with an outstanding rookie camp that seemed a prelude to an excellent career. Now, it’s stuck in neutral. Moore still makes great plays, but he makes an equal number of inexcusable mistakes. Allen wants a No. 1 receiver to emerge, and Moore seems an excellent candidate to fill that void. Thus far, it hasn’t happened.

Most importantly he has 3 catches out of four targets this preseason. Sounds like a pretty solid preseason considering the questions they have at starting quarterback after moving on from Carson Palmer.

Right now ESPN has him penciled in as the number one wide receiver on the depth chart.

    Your second sentence is incorrect, “Moore is coming off a fairly solid rookie campaign.”
    Entering his third year now would mean he’s coming off his “Sophomore”
    campaign…which was dreadful to say the least. We in the “Nation” have extremely high hopes for this kid, and after reading about his character issues has put us in a bit of concern as of late. Forget about a healthy Jacoby Ford…imagine a matured Moore – Streater – Butler 3 out set in the future. We “Do” have hope to look forward to!
