A name to remember on Day 2: OLB Sio Moore

By staff

Outside linebacker is a popular Day 2 projection for the Seahawks, who own the 56th and 87th overall selections and aren't expected to re-sign veteran Leroy Hill.

Dan Shonka of has Seattle taking Kansas State's Arthur Brown at No. 56, a projection he shared with "Bob and Groz" on Thursday.

Brock Huard and Danny O'Neil have another name to remember: Connecticut's Sio Moore.

A first-team all-Big East selection in 2012, Moore finished second in the conference with eight sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss. He's a native of Liberia who moved to American as a young child.

"Moore is a very disciplined linebacker – he reads the play well, doesn't overpursue and fills running lanes well. In the passing game, he has consistently shown the ability to cover tight ends and slot receivers," the STATS scouting report on Moore reads, in part. "Additionally, he's a very sure, physical and hard tackler."

Huard shares additional thoughts on Moore in the video below, while O'Neil explains why he doesn't see Seattle taking former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu.
