Who was that rookie who embarrassed the Oakland Raiders' $70 million cornerback?

He's Eddie Royal, a second-round pick from Virginia Tech. After his superb NFL debut in Oakland, the Raider Nation should be worried it'll become far too familiar with the Broncos' budding star in the future.

Royal had nine catches for 146 yards and a touchdown, and Jay Cutler passed for 299 yards and two scores in Denver's 41-14 season-opening victory over the Raiders on Monday night.

Royal did most of his damage against DeAngelo Hall, acquired from Atlanta in the biggest move of the Raiders' off-season restocking.
