The Oakland Raiders selected outside linebacker Sio Moore out of UCoon with the 66th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Last season Moore earned All-Big East first-team honors, recording 72 tackle, 7.5 sacks, and 11 pass breakups.

“Disciplined linebacker who follows through on his assignments and maintains his gap responsibilities prevent cutbacks,” says NFL.com’s scouting report.” Also a solid tackler, able to break down and securely wrap the ballcarrier’s torso or leg for minimal yards after the catch.

The Raider drafted offensive tackle Menelik Watson 42nd overall earlier today.
