    After a rough morning practice that included dropped passes and counsel from Jeff Garcia, Raiders rookie wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey mostly watched during the second session. The No. 1 draft pick, who at one point Saturday morning was being worked on by the training staff for an apparent cramp, went through some drills but did not participate in any seven-on-seven or team drills. Raiders coach Tom Cable, who addresses the media once in the afternoon, declined to update Heyward-Beys status. He said hell get into it tomorrow, senior executive John Herrera said.

    Russell really needs to improve on his accuracy. Here is getting a good chance to work on it.

    I second that!!! High Five to the teams with the winning WRS outta that draft.!!!!!

    Look at it this way raiders fans. He is fast, so after he drops the ball, he can run to coach, get snitched out and get back in the huddle to do it again before everyone else is given the next play.

    Robo/Nicks/Britt/Thomas >>>>> Crabtree/Maclin/DHB/Harvin

    IMO Maclin is the only "tier one" WR that doesnt scream failure

    Coming from a spread offence, I think he could have more of a curve than Robo, Nicks, Thomas and Britt. But he doesnt come in with serious questions like Crabtree, DHB, and Harvin. He will be a top WR in about 3 years, but he might not due much until then. I think he will be a much better overall WR than Jackson

    i think harvin has some serious potential to be great, especially in that offense. but i dont look at him as a full time wr as much as i look at him as reggie bush

    The main question seems to be how he will run all these routes that he didn't have in college.

    they will do what they did with jackson, just kinda throw him in there and tell him to get open as they bring him along and it worked well with jackson

    Harvin = Felix Jones with a crapty attitude and spackle bones

    Thats why I think it will take a couple years for him to "arrive"
