Sound off: Heyward-Bey or Crabtree

We're going to Raider Nation for this week's "Sound off" question.

Are you happy or upset that the Raiders took Darrius Heyward-Bey over Michael Crabtree with the No. 7 overall pick in the draft?

Oakland made Heyward-Bey the first receiver taken despite the fact that Crabtree, who was taken three picks later by the Raiders' Bay Area rival, San Francisco, was widely considered the top receiver available. Heyward-Bey was the fastest receiver in the draft and Oakland loves fast players. Speed beat out production with this pick.

Do you agree or are you upset by the pick? Hit my mailbag with your thoughts. I will post some of your responses later in the week.
