Heyward-Bey Hailed as a Prospect

This probably isn't a surprise to anyone but Darrius Heyward-Bey's status as an NFL prospect continues to rise. A recent CNN/SI draft projection listed Heyward-Bey 18th among players eligible for next April's draft, the third wide receiver behind Texas Tech's Michael Crabtree and Missouri's Jeremy Maclin, who are also underclassmen. Heyward-Bey is described as having "home run hitting speed and is a threat to take it the distance any time he's on the field."

If Matt Millen were still running the Lions, Heyward-Bey would have had a chance to be the first pick overall.

Does anyone expect to see Heyward-Bey back in College Park next fall or are there just five more games left in his Maryland career?

MR, everyone thought T-Rock #44 was gone? FREDTERP

I don't really see how he returns, barring a serious injury (God forbid). If his stock is that high without even putting up huge stats on the season, then he's definitely gone. As much as I'd like him to come back next year, having a 1st rd draft pick at a skill position is probably just as good for the program overall.

Erin Henderson was at the Homecoming game...maybe Darrius should ask him how going out early worked out.

(Is Erin still on the Vikes roster at all? Practice squad? He should have been out there in the rain blowing people up with Wujack).

He's gone, just like Merriman and V. Davis. Unfortunately for whomever drafts him, I think he'll be closer to Vernon than Shawne as a player. Great athlete who can't run the right routes. He'll go early in round 2.

Erin Henderson made the team initially, was cut and put on the practice squad for a week, and then brought back. Special teams contributor, he was the one getting blasted on the Reggie Bush punt return TD on MNF. He's shown flashes, but has been hampered by injuries (shocker).
