Raiders OC Greg Olson on the inconsistencies of wide receiver Denarius Moore: "A lot of it is going to be on Denarius. To me, it’s that whole character issue, becoming a self-starter, becoming a self-motivated person, and a lot of it comes with maturity. I think he’d be the first guy to say we’re constantly on top of him . . . we’ll just coach him up, but I think he’s becoming a more mature player and a more mature person. A lot of players will tell you, `Boy, I wish I had been more mature as a younger player.’ And I think that maturity will happen for Denarius."
Moore's stock has taken a hit with his inconsistent camp and the team's other offensive woes, but someone has to catch the ball in Oakland and it's likely going to be some combination of Moore, Rod Streater, Marcel Reece and Darren McFadden. The Raiders are likely to be trailing quite a bit, and that means lots of pass attempts. As an upside WR4/WR5, Moore isn't a bad option.
