When the Oakland Raiders used the seventh overall pick in the 2009 draft to select Darrius Heyward-Bey, the McDonogh graduate and Maryland product was the first wide receiver taken off the board. That honor raised the bar for Heyward-Bey, who is trying to assert himself as the Raiders' top wideout. NFL Network analyst and former kick returner Bucky Brooks thinks there is still room and time for Heyward-Bey to develop into that role. Here is what Brooks had to say about Heyward-Bey.

The knock on Ralph Friedgen's office door interrupted a major session of second guessing. As the University of Maryland's coach replayed the 21-14 loss to Oregon State in the 2007 Emerald Bowl in his mind, he contemplated the difference another fast and physical receiver to pair with Darrius Heyward-Bey would have made. That's when Torrey Smith, who fit the profile but was redshirted that season in a decision Friedgen still questions, was a surprise visitor to his office. "He walks in and says, 'You know coach, I let you down.

Sometime early in the process, Darrius Heyward-Bey removed the mystique from the NFL draft and reduced his interminable offseason to a series of job interviews. Less than two weeks from a destination, the 6-foot-3 wide receiver from Maryland with 4.3 speed in the 40-yard dash has handled it all - the workouts and interviews, the poking and probing - with good humor and a keen sense of responsibility. It's almost as if Heyward-Bey, 22, has been preparing for this all his life. In a way, he has. When he was 14, he left his mother, Vivian Heyward-Bey, and his safety net in Silver Spring to attend McDonogh in pursuit of a better education and a future in basketball.

Ravens 55, Raiders 20 Strategy: Dean Pees' unpredictable, innovative schemes were highlighted by lining up rookie outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw at defensive tackle. And Pees' two-defensive-lineman, three-linebacker, six-defensive-back "dollar" package contributed to three sacks, one interception and eight pass deflections. With a virtually nonexistent pass rush and Haloti Ngata sidelined, Pees got more speed onto the field by taking out beefy nose guards Ma'ake Kemoeatu and Terrence Cody, and inserting DeAngelo Tyson and Bryan Hall.

If pundits and fans were optimistic before the season, it was largely because of Maryland's speed. But - with the exception of Darrius Heyward-Bey's long run against Clemson - the Terps haven't been taking advantage of this asset the past few games. Heyward-Bey had no catches against Virginia. Da'Rel Scott's longest run in the game was 12 yards. (For more, go to baltimoresun.com/terpsblog)

About 20 injured football players did not participate in Maryland's third and final summer scrimmage yesterday, including four linebackers and the Terps' top three receivers, coach Ralph Friedgen said. By the end of the scrimmage, another linebacker had been injured. Among the sidelined were linebackers Erin Henderson (stinger) and his backup, Rick Costa. Linebacker Chase Bullock (ankle) is still out, and Dave Philistin, who had taken over for Bullock, pulled his hamstring yesterday. Philistin's backup, Ben Pooler, is out for three weeks.

Performer of the Year Darrius Heyward-Bey, McDonogh The senior sprinted his way into the record books at the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association championships. Heyward-Bey won the 100- and 200-meter dashes for the third consecutive season at the MIAA meet. His time of 10.3 seconds in the 100 broke the previous record of 10.60 set by Calvert Hall's Alan McDavid in 1999, while his time of 21.1 shattered the previous record of 21.65 he established last spring. A member of the winning 800 relay squad at the MIAA championships, Heyward-Bey also took the 100 at the Morgan State Invitational in 10.78.

Maryland offensive tackle Bruce Campbell, who some thought could sneak into the first round because of his workout at the NFL Combine in February, was taken today by the Oakland Raiders in the fourth round (106th overall). He joins former teammate Darrius Heyward-Bey, who was taken seventh overall last year by the Raiders. Campbell, whose 6-foot-6, 314-pound frame is ideal for an offensive tackle, ran an unofficial 40-yard dash time of 4.75 seconds at the combine in Indianapolis, putting him on some teams' radar.

Notes from Maryland's 36-27 victory over Temple: * A player who emerged Saturday was sophomore wide receiver Marcus Leak. He caught a 32-yard touchdown reception in the first half. In the second half, he made a leaping, 39-yard catch on a third-and-17. He outjumped a pair of Temple defenders. It was the sort of grab you haven't seen much from Maryland since the days of Torrey Smith and Darrius Heyward-Bey. Leak appears to be a gifted and physical enough receiver to snatch passes away from defenders in heavy traffic.

Darrius Heyward-Bey likes a challenge. Or perhaps more appropriately, he enjoys being challenged. From adolescence to McDonogh to Maryland, Heyward-Bey has encountered doubts and at each turn, he has overcome those obstacles. Now a starting wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders, who will visit M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday to meet the Ravens, Heyward-Bey can look back at those challenges and credit them for aiding his development. "It's just my personality. I've always been that way," he said Wednesday night after a Raiders practice.

As a wide receiver, Darrius Heyward-Bey is expected to go to the middle of the field, catch passes, and brace for the impact that comes when a defensive back or linebacker crashes into him. But the sight of the Silver Spring native and McDonogh graduate absorbing a blow from Pittsburgh Steelers strong safety Ryan Mundy in the fourth quarter of the Oakland Raiders' 34-31 win still caused many to grimace. The top of Mundy's helmet appeared to strike Heyward-Bey in the facemask, and the former University of Maryland product had to be carted off the field.

After years of losing some of the top local college football talent, the Maryland Terrapins have apparently persuaded DeMatha wide receiver Kenny Tate to stay close to home. Tate, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound wide receiver, announced last night on Comcast SportsNet that he plans to play for the Terps next season. Tate is expected to sign his letter of intent Wednesday, the national signing day. "I thought Maryland was the best fit for me, being close to home," Tate said. "Even though I'm a home-state kid, I still thought it was a home away from home, but I'm still close enough to be with my family."

The Maryland wide receiver talked about what he needs to do to impress scouts at this week's scouting combine during a Wednesday appearance on ESPN Radio's "The Scott Van Pelt Show. " In recent years, Maryland has sent a bunch of workout warriors to the combine, including Vernon Davis, Shawne Merriman and Darrius Heyward-Bey, players whom Van Pelt said had “blown things up” at the combine.
