#5 at WR
Heyward-Bey is an explosive playmaker who can change the momentum of a game on any play. He gets a quick release off the line, runs good routes, flashes reliable hands and is elusive in the open field. He gets separation on the outside and tracks down deep throws with ease. He's doesn't shy away from going over the middle and making tough receptions in traffic

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||This selection shouldn't have come to that much of a surprise considering team owner Al Davis loves speed and Heyward-Bey had the best 40-yard dash time of any receiver at the NFL combine. NFL analyst Ron Jaworski told Scout.com recently that Heyward-Bey was much more talented than his collegiate numbers suggest and he called him easily one of the top receivers available for this draft.|
