BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistJuly 7, 2013

This video is part of B/R's series "The Rookies," where we take the helmets off the players and bring you closer to their lives and personalities.

Welcome to Sio Moore's world as an Oakland Raiders rookie linebacker. The third-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft is slowly acclimating to living in the Bay Area.

He's quickly becoming best friends with his roommate, first-round pick D.J. Hayden.

Moore is a person with an amazing backstory of being born in Liberia, then being raised by both his single mother in Connecticut and his older sister in North Carolina. He's overcome huge obstacles in his life to make it to the brink of winning a starting job as a linebacker for the Raiders.

In OTAs, Moore mostly worked out with the first team. In college, he played every position with the exception of cornerback, leading him to state in a pre-draft interview with Jenny Vrentas of The Star-Ledger, "That's why I really feel like I'm the best linebacker in this class."

With training camp around the corner, Moore has lots to prove. However, he may not have to prove how much he loves music. One trip into his room, and you'll see and hear firsthand what role music plays in Sio Moore's life.

Check out the video above as we get a firsthand look at how Sio Moore and D.J. Hayden share a room, see what their tastes are and learn about some of Moore's eccentric collections and musical taste.
