Derek Carr could be nice fit with Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders have the 4th selection on Friday and could use that selection to take Derek Carr. The Houston Texans have the first pick in the round and may want to pass on selecting Carr onto their team with the history of a Carr in that franchise. The Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns hold the next two selections and don’t need to select a quarterback with their choices.

Carr could fall to them in the 2nd round and could be a perfect fit. The Raiders already have Matt Schaub on the roster, but if Schaub were to falter, they could lean on Carr for the future. Carr could be brought in and be groomed for the next few seasons.

He has a strong arm and is one of the best quarterbacks in the class. He could be a really good addition for the Raiders and could easily push for some playing time on the roster.

Carr is sitting around waiting to get selected and could hear his name when the Oakland Raiders are put on the clock.

    Let’s just hope the Texans pass.so the Raiders can get him,DC is a stud.

  • Giovannoni

    If we get him this would already be a great draft.

    As Gruden said when they thought Carr was going to go to Arizona in the late twenties “they may get the steal of the draft”………Oakland may have a chance to have a very impressive first two rounds…..Carr is in many eyes the best QB in this class……

  • KloverJane

    Let’s hope he’s there but hopefully we look at AJ McCarron too. And the best available. ..

  • CRUZdaddy

    Although it would be nice.. I hope a team trades up for him. Or 49ers can play nice and give up both 2nd round picks and a 3rd to come get M. Lee . Raider fans we still need a DT a CB and QB.. with 49ers picks we can address those three issues and also help the 49ers get there WR they need.. if not I prefer jernagin over Carr.. full the needs please ..we can still get gorrapolo or savage with a trade down . We need more picks!

  • Logan Kuehner

    Wouldn’t mind it…. But a receiver and a corner would be nice to…. Lamarcus Joyner? Marqise Lee?

  • Ralphryder

    I would like the raiders to trade down and add more picks… hopefully a additional 2nd or 3rd…
    Pieces to Reggie’s plan will fall in place on day2 of draft.
