Rumors of Heyward-Bey or Harvin at No. 7

Sound crazy?

Sure does to me. That is what ProFootballTalk is throwing out there. For what it is worth, even local beat writer Jerry McDonald has said he has heard rumors about Heyward-Bey being a lock. I’ve read elsewhere early on in the process that Davis likes Harvin.

Still, I actually really like both these guys and wouldn’t be overly disappointed if we drafted them. Unless of course we pass on Aaron Curry to do it.

This leads me to believe the Raiders may be one of the teams that are trying to move down. What? What did I say? Going back on my word? Not really. I still think it doesn’t happen, unless Mark Sanchez is available at #7. In that case, I believe one of the teams that are trying to get him at #8 will leapfrog the competition and give Raiders an extra 2009 or 2010 1st round selection.

If no team wants to move up to #7, don’t be super surprised when the Raiders make a big splash by reaching.

I will point out reaching isn’t all bad. Buffalo  reached on Donte Whitner a few years back and he has been a steady player for them.
