In all seriousness though... the sins of the brother shouldn't be passed onto the.. brother. All reports I've read is he's a student of the game (first to show up, last to leave) and he has all the tools his brother possessed and nobody is going to doubt David's physical tools, it was always his comintment and mental approach that held him back.

Me even bringing him up just shows how deathly scared I am of taking any of the QBs projected to guy high in this draft. I don't like Bridgewater, want NO PARTS OF MANZIEL, no Mariota. People keep talking about how deep the QB position is in this draft.. yes it's deep, but there is not a Andrew Luck, RG3, or Cam Newton. There's no clear cut ringer.

Derek Carr actually has the most NFL ready skill set and is the dark horse to sky rocket up the boards and might end up being the best player. If you just ignored the name and watched the tape, he does have NFL ready talent.

Hey 2012champs... since I can't respond to you in the other thread..if they were doing their job, they would've just moved the thread. Something tells me if it didn't involve a "Carr", that thread would've simply been moved, not deleted altogether.

This season is OVER and as long as we have the #1 ovrl pick in the draft I don't see how any prospect is not relevant to the Texans as they now have the pick of the litter. It sure as hell beats the redundant threads that have been retreads for weeks on the Texans football forum.

Regardless though I'll admit I should've posted it here, but it should've been moved here as well. However this season is OVER.. all future discussion is not going to move on to who we should draft. Don't blame me or the people who now only care about that. Blame this sucktastic team, players, and franchise for saying SB or Bust.. and then letting the bottom fall out on route to the 1st pick in the freaking draft.

BTW, don't you ever get tired of calling yourself "2012champs".. we're now are coming off a horrible season heading into the 2014 football season, you're starting to look like some Uganda kid wearing a Buffalo Bills Super Bowl champions T-shirt.

I know it's confusing, I hope that clears it up.

And yes.. a bit of this thread comes from the complete frustration I'm feeling over this &%@&%# of a failure of a season, so please excuse me and cut me a little slack here. I might be having a little of a meltdown.
Pfft. You just want your username to be relevant again!

(Well, not want a new QB to bomb, but you get what I mean).

My username became more relevant after he bombed...

Honestly I'm trying to separate his last name from his brother, because while he possesses the arm and athleticism, I believe he's not the same person and it's unfair to type cast a guy simply because his brother failed. He's not his brother. Supposedly the report on him is he's a gym rat.. he could be someone who has the skills, but has learned from his brother (from mistakes that even David later admitted were his fault).

All I'm saying the fact that I'm even considering him cast light on this upcoming QB draft. It's deep in potential, but there is NO top dog in this draft and if you separated the prospect from the name of "Carr"... Derek Carr actually looks like the best prospect coming out. He has every NFL skill set that you look for at that position.

If some team wants to offer up a war chest of picks I agree... my only issue is, teams usually only trade up for QBs.. and in this deep QB draft where the talent level doesn't really drop off from 1st to 2nd rounders in talent, is there really going to be a trading partner willing to trade up and offer a boat load of extra picks? In a draft that regardless of the depth, there is no clear cut cowbell. We don't even have a RG3 behind Andrew Luck that entices teams to hand over a farm.

I'd love to move to #3-5 from #1 pending I could swap firsts , get a #2 this year and a #1 next year. Then you can have your choice of Bridgeclownmathiota.

Derek Carr: "I'll Outwork Anybody"

Now I don't want the Texans to draft him, one reason is fit... another is how he'd be treated here... but I don't know how you don't come away from that with some respect for the young man.

After he was interrupted by his Combine escort but politely asked to continue his story about his son and did so, Carr thanked everyone and left the podium to shake the hands of the reporters gathered there and thanked them for their questions. Number of others who have done that: 0. I wish him the best.

I agree. The Texans could not sell another Carr to their fans. And don't want to go off on a David Carr bash session, but you can't watch that interview and not think that Derek is the kind of leader that David never was. I like his chances to make it in the NFL. Just not in Houston.

David said all of the right things as well. David looked and acted the part. Not saying that his brother might not be sincere or anything, but there is no way that Houston could draft another Carr. If it doesn't work out, I'd bail on the Texans for good. I couldn't sit through another Carr experiment if it didn't work out. I wouldn't want to have the constant reminders of David and seeing his face all over the news again and him hanging around the stadium. It would be like living through an awful nightmare all over again, and I feel that I've done that for 8 years of Gary Kubiak knowing Gary would be to stubborn to adapt every year. I don't like the fact that David is this kid's mentor most likely either. The backlash to drafting Carr would be bad from the start. The backlash if he struggled would be to much to bear for this fan base, and I'm apart of that I'll admit. You don't throw good money after bad. Carr is simply not an option here for Houston in my opinion.

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.

Default QB Derek Carr

Sorry if this has been discussed, I went back three pages looking for Carr in topic tough.

Anyway, was just having a discussion with a fellow Raider fan about Derek Carr and the Houston Texans. That fan seems to think the Texans may go after Carr, but I and others replied that after David we doubt Bob would draft another Carr. I feel Derek would have to be Peytonesque in order to justify the Texans taking him. And I realize that Derek is not David, but how would you all feel about drafting Derek? Good idea, bad idea, McNair would be a total idiot, etc.?????
