Is Darrius Heyward-Bey on the Eagles radar? Heyward-Bey is a 6'2" 210 pound wide receiver from the University of Maryland. Recently, he ran a 4.3/40 at the NFL Scouting Combine. Heyward-Bey is coming off a pair of strong seasons at UM where he accumulated over 1400 yards and 8 touchdowns; averaging 15.4 yards per catch.
It is no surprise that the Baltimore Ravens are working Heyward-Bey out as he is projected to be a late first round pick and Baltimore, who is in need of wide receiver help, holds the 26th overall pick. However, it seems that the Eagles are also a team that have Heyward-Bey scheduled to work out for them.
The Philadelphia Eagles have also arranged a workout in College Park, and three more teams - the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, St. Louis Rams and Vikings - have extended invitations to Heyward-Bey.
Heyward-Bey is a player that presents game breaking ability. He has great vertical speed and is excellent at creating seperation from press coverage. Also, he has the ability to make tough catches with a 40" vertical leap and good hands. Additionally, he has the ability to turn a short catch into a long gain.
