Raiders Select CB D.J. Hayden At No. 12
PFT’s Mike Florio reported earlier Thursday that the Raiders had interest in Hayden, who was regarded as one of the top CB prospects in the draft.
Hayden’s senior season at Houston was cut short by a freak accident. He suffered a ruptured inferior vena cava, a blood-vessel injury that can be fatal. However, he has recovered, and now, he figures to contend for a role in the Raiders’ secondary in his first NFL season.
