D.J. Hayden starts for the Raiders in preseason debut

One of the greatest feel-good stories of this year’s draft was former Houston Cougar cornerback D.J. Hayden, who nearly died from a freak injury in a November practice. According to ESPN, Surgeons only gave Hayden a 5% chance of surviving and compared sewing the severed artery to “sewing together wet tissue paper”. After losing nearly 30 lbs. and having a scare from his navel to his throat, Hayden rebounded at the Cougar’s Pro Day, regaining his prior weight and strength and running a 4.3 40 yard dash time. Hayden elevated his draft status from middle to late rounds to becoming the 12th overall and Oakland’s 1st pick.
