End of story.
Maybe the Raiders reached because they thought another team was going to reach and take him. They found their player of the future and werent going to let him get away. Jerry Rice got away. Jerry Rice was very simular is size, speed, and skill as Darrius HeyWard-Bey. A difference is possibly worse defenses back in Jerry's day (that was a reach). Or maybe is was Joe. Or maybe it was that Niner O-line. Bill Walsh. -Al wasnt a great teacher as Bill and Bill wasnt a business man, as Al. DHB had a bad team and a bad QB. End of story?
