Raiders Prefer Derek Carr Over Johnny Manziel


The Oakland Raiders could be in search of a quarterback at the top of the draft this season and many people believe that Johnny Manziel would be a good fit for the team. Word out of Oakland says that the team has another quarterback that is high on their list:

“The Raiders are known for their unconventional picks, so Manziel might seem like a natural fit for them. Word is, though, that they liked Carr more coming out of the Combine.” – Sam Farmar of Los Angeles Times. 

This is also “liar’s season” in the league and  the staff in Oakland could be blowing some smoke out there so that nobody trades in front of them in order to select Manziel. Manziel is a talented quarterback and is selected to be one of the top 3 quarterbacks taken in the draft, but it seems that Derek Carr is sneaking his way into the mix with the latest buzz.

If the Raiders select a quarterback at the top of the draft. should they take Johnny Manziel or Derek Carr?

    Raiders should draft Carr.Enough said.

    • Pridenpoise

      Possibly but not at number 5.

    • Bob

      Not at number 5. There is a 80% chance he will not succeed in the NFL.

      If you think he’s the best QB available, then you draft him at No. 5. I really don’t think he’ll slip into the second round, but I’m also not sure they will get a QB.

  • K Hendricks

    Pride who would you rather take,if it isn’t Khalil mack?

  • Silvia Arredondo

    Take Carr if he is still there

  • Bevan Ryken

    Watkins first round, Carr second round if available

  • Angel

    Khalil Mack. I really want Mike Evans, maybe trade up and pick up Ebron later in the round instead of Evans..?. They’re both a beast. But if I HAD to choose on Carr or Manziel…… I’d go James Winston next year. We’ll have no.#1 overall next year.
