DENARIUS MOOREFifth round, No. 148 overall
Pos.: Wide receiver
School: Tennessee
Hometown: Tatum, Texas
Ht. 6-0; Wt. 194

College career: Averaged a mind-numbing 20.9 yards per reception as a senior, on 47 catches, with nine touchdowns. For his career, he caught 112 passes for 2,004 yards and 18 touchdowns.Scouting report: Somewhat lithe, he is still seen as a legitimate deep threat who is a consistent route runner. Sometimes had trouble breaking through man-press coverage.How he fits with Raiders: Puzzling, because the Raiders need a veteran receiver to go along with their core of young pass catchers more than another unproven youngster.
