Cornerback D.J. Hayden signed with the Oakland Raiders, completing the contracts for the team's 10-player draft class. Terms of the deal for the 12th overall pick in April were not disclosed. Hayden, 5-11, 190 pounds, had six interceptions in 22 career games at the University of Houston, and rocketed up draft boards after proving he was over a torn inferior vena cava and running a blistering 40-yard dash at his pro day. Hayden also had surgery in May to remove scar tissue from his abdomen.
