Vacchiano: DHB is Giants' target

From Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News.

Just because the Giants don't expect to make a trade for Braylon Edwards on Saturday doesn't mean they won't make a deal for a receiver. That's still their intention on Day 1 of the NFL draft.

And their target appears to be Maryland receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey.

According to two sources familiar with the team's plans, the Giants are looking to trade up in the first round with the hopes of getting into position to draft Heyward-Bey. The 6-2, 210-pounder is one of the fastest receivers in the draft - he once ran a 4.23 in the 40-yard dash - and the Giants view him as the big-play, deep threat they so desperately need now that Plaxico Burress has been released.

DHB has all the tools to become a superstar. But, his college numbers tell you he could also be Tim Carter.

What do you think, Giants' fans? Would this be a good move for GM Jerry Reese to make?
