Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times expects wide receiver Darius Heyward-Bey to have a break out year in 2012, after a very strong 2011 season.
Heyward-Bey put up some pretty impressive numbers in 2011 with 64 receptions for 975 yards and 4 touchdowns last season. If he can catch over 70 balls, gain over 1,000 yards and catch a few more touchdowns, he just might live up to being taken in the top ten of the 2009 draft.
Heyward-Bey is only 25 years-old and it looks like he’s starting to enter the prime of his career and could emerge as one of the NFL’s most dangerous receivers.
