Raiders corner D.J. Hayden finally starting to put things together

The Oakland Raiders chose to go with a young and mostly unproven group of corners to start the year and many believed it was a foolish move. Yet through two games, it’s not the corners who have struggled the most on defense. In fact, the corners have actually played much better than expected. They aren’t great by any means but they have shown that they can be good enough if they...

Oakland Raiders: Why DJ Hayden must have a breakout season

Most of the Oakland Raiders draft picks within the past few years haven’t been able to transition their game from the college scene to the NFL, resulting in Raider ownership turning heads around the league with their poor draft selections.

Who should replace Oakland Raiders CB D.J. Hayden if he misses significant time?

Raiders hope DJ Hayden the sequel is much better than the original

I, like many, wasn’t even exactly sure who DJ Hayden was going into the 2013 NFL Draft. I mean, I do follow the draft, but honestly all I’d heard about Hayden was about the injury he sustained during practice that very nearly killed him. He was selected 12th overall in the draft despite having not taken a snap in the second half of his senior year. He had started the first nine...
