Heyward-Bey Drawing Interest?

Is Darrius Heyward-Bey on the Eagles radar?Heyward-bey_medium  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.
