Darrius Heyward-Bey

Wide Receiver

In 2009, Al Davis and the Raiders fell head over heels for athletic wide receiver Darrius-Heyward Bey. Once a fringe first-round pick, Heyward-Bey was selected seventh overall by Oakland after he ran a 4.30 and had an impressive 40-inch vertical at the combine. Heyward-Bey had a breakout year in 2011, catching 64 balls for 975 yards but regressed to 606 receiving yards in 2012.
