The Oakland Raiders have selected Connecticut linebacker Sio Moore in the third round of the NFL draft.

General manager Reggie McKenzie took Moore 66th overall in the draft on Friday. Oakland took offensive lineman Menelik Watson earlier in the day with its second round pick acquired when the team traded down nine spots in the first round before taking cornerback D.J. Hayden.

Moore had 72 tackles and eight sacks last season at UConn. He has 16 sacks, four interceptions, four forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries in 41 career college games.
