Discussion thread.

Go!

(This is going to go 100 pages for sure....)

Derek Carr - QB - Fresno St

Quote:
Bottom Line
Athletic, tough, instinctive, strong-armed, highly competitive quarterback who will impress in workouts, interviews and on the board, and improved his draft standing with those skills in the postseason. Elevated the Fresno State program and profiles like a gunslinger, though he’d be better served in the long run honing his game-management skills. Will be a starter sooner rather than later and the degree to which he’s able to make those around him better will determine his ceiling.

Good pick. We can let him sit and learn. Work with our coaches. I kinda wish we could have surrounded Schaub with more talent and maybe built the team a little more. But this kid looks like a pro. I think he has a good shot at being the QBOTF.

#1 QB on Reggies board I believe in the second round.

Gotta love the value. Kid is raw and has some mechanical flaws, but has huge upside. Jay Cutler-like.

I was Jonesin' for Stephon Tuitt but Derek Carr has arm talent. I would prefer Tuitt, but I completely understand.

This draft has been a dream come true personally. Wow

Been pounding my fist for this guy all year. Showed he can take pro coaching this offseason and has played in a pro style offense before. Perfect scenario for him to be in with Schaub holding down the fort for a year or two and he can clean up some of his technique. Team is really coming together nicely.

BTW Al Davis is clapping his arse off over that arm. Nice that Mark loved him too.

+1

This is already my favorite draft that I can remember. Looking forward to seeing who we get next. I'm really glad we have Schaub and got Carr in the 2nd- there's no pressure to rush him into action. He can learn from a vet, get some coaching, and refine his game.

Still not a big Carr fan but we could do a lot worse. Best arm in the draft. Just gotta protect him and fix him shrinking under pressure.


RaiderX where you at? Just checking in to make sure you didn't die from the happiness you must be experiencing. Mack and Carr, wow.

edit: didn't see your post Laughing

I like that we got a local guy. I also like the fact that Reggie has said he's going to make him sit his rookie year. Then add to that the fact that Reggie believes in building from the trenches out.... at least Carr should be set up to succeed. It's a good feeling to know that's the case, as opposed to letting him fly on his own and hope his talent can propel himself into stardom. Which rarely happens.

Not my first choice but at the same time I was really happy to see the pick so, maybe subconsciously I love it.
I'll admit I do have a good feeling about the kid.
