Carr has the ability to throw the deep ball down field as well as anyone in the NFL today. He is the only quarterback in this years draft, that I would consider NFL ready.
Carr can overcome adversity and keep his mind focused on the game. During his 2013 season at Fresno State he and his partner gave birth to their first child. There were all kinds of problems and the baby had to have a series of surgeries.
Somehow Carr was able to stay focused on football and he led Fresno State to a great season. He threw for 5,083 yards and had 50 touchdowns and only 8 interceptions.
This guy is one of the best quarterbacks coming into the 2014 NFL draft. He finished his college career with 12,843 yards, 113 touchdowns and only 24 interceptions.
He started his high school career at Clements High School in Sugar Land, Texas, and finished it at Bakersfield Christian in Bakersfield, California where he threw for 4,067 yards in his senior year with 46 touchdowns and only 9 interceptions.
Carr is a proven winner and he is the only quarterback in this NFL draft that we believe could step into the NFL and win football games consistently.
Carr isn’t ranked very high in the draft compared to some of the other quarterbacks. This means nothing. He is very under-rated and he is one of the best all around QB’s coming out this year.
The Cleveland Browns would do well taking Derek Carr with the teams 26th pick in the draft, if he lasts that long.
