#22 Minnesota Vikings - Darrius Heyward-Bey
Wide Receiver, Maryland
Well Troy Williamson failed miserably, so you might as well take a flier on his second coming right? Right? Ehh. I think the Vikings would like a quarterback, but with Freeman off the board there's no one else worth taking this high. If you can't get a quarterback, the next best option is to get better wide receivers. Bernard Berrian is a nice option but not a true number one. Heyward-Bey struggles to catch the ball at times, has questionable instincts and is very, very raw, but he can fly and he's got decent size. He is the quintessential low floor, high ceiling player who is more likely to be excellent or awful than average.
Other options: Harvin, Hakeem Nicks, Beatty, Jerry
