If there is any doubt anywhere on this planet whether Al Davis is still calling the shots, this pick -- Darius Heyward-Bey -- lets you know the answer.

Michael CrabtreeDavis loved straight-line speed (read: the 40-yard dash) and took a talented but enigmatic Heyward-Bey over more sure things in Michael Crabtree (who never has been timed in the 40) and Jeremy Maclin.

Oakland's offensive talent is pretty intriguing, though, is it not? They have some real game-breakers in Heyward-Bey, Johnny Lee Higgins and Darren McFadden, among others.

I smell a few trades brewing here in the next few picks. 

Oh, and Nolan Nawrocki is now 6-for-7 in his picks, even with a trade few saw coming.
