Although Denarius Moore has the name (and history, I guess) of being the Oakland Raiders number one receiver, it appeaser Rod Streater is quickly catching up to him.
Pryor, who The Chronicle reported is starting over Matt Flynn, has taken a lot more snaps with Moore, Streater and Ford the last couple of weeks. He already had a strong connection with Streater, a close friend who he worked out with all summer.
“He’s way more comfortable throwing the ball than he was a year ago,” Streater said.
And Streater and the others are more comfortable reading when Pryor is about to take off and either run or throw on the run.
“He’s always going to try and make a play happen, so there is a little clock in your head that goes off,” Streater said. “You gotta find that open void.”
And as far as the talk of being a No. 1 receiver, Streater said it doesn’t really matter.
“I have to go out there and catch the ball regardless,” he said.
What Moore lacks in solid hands, Streater possesses, which should help him elevate his status to being the top target and potential security blanket of Pryor.
