RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Life-saving surgery to repair a torn heart vain last fall wasn't enough to scare the Raiders away from taking Hayden with the No. 12 overall pick in April's draft. The second-guessing started almost immediately, however, as the 23-year-old had to undergo another procedure less than a month after being drafted to clean out scar tissue around his abdomen, which was a result of his prior surgery. Much to the delight of the Raiders, Hayden was cleared to practice ahead of the start of training camp, and he projects to start right away for Oakland, assuming his health holds up. Not only did Hayden show lock-down ability at the University of Houston, but he also displayed a great nose for finding the ball, creating 12 turnovers (6 interceptions, 6 forced fumbles) in his two years at the school.
