Raiders draft WR Heyward-Bey

In a move that left most Raider fans and fantasy leaguers scratching their heads, the Silver & Black took Darius Heyward-Bey ahead of Texas Tech’s Michael Crabtree with the No. 7 overall selection.

Heyward-Bey’s speed is what made him so attractive to owner Al Davis, who could envision the rookie as the second coming of Cliff Branch.

Of course, Heyward-Bey could turn into the second coming off James Jett, too.

With no clear-cut No. 1 wide receiver on the roster, Heyward-Bey will warrant late-round consideration in seasonal fantasy drafts. Just don’t expect him to do much in what remains a questionable Raiders pass attack.
