ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Safety Rahim Moore has long been a fan of Denver defensive backs Champ Bailey and Brian Dawkins, dissecting their games from afar while building a pretty good name for himself at UCLA.

Now, he gets to be their understudy.

Considered the top safety in the NFL draft, Moore said he's already learned a thing or two from the Denver duo that he calls "my favorite DBs ever."

After the Broncos selected him in the second round, he revealed that he had photos of Bailey and Dawkins on his cell phone and laptop, and he wasted no time calling Dawkins the night he was drafted.
