He had some swag until they hit him , then he came apart like a cheap rug .

ps ... I am biased against him and believe he'll be the sequel .

Put McCarron on this Fresno State team and tell me they still aren't getting blown out.

And no, I'm not a Derek Carr fan. Just tired of people bashing Carr/Fales/Bridgewater/Bortles/etc. for not carrying their mediocre teams 24/7 but praising AJ for not carrying his elite team 24/7.

Derek behind that O-line against that defense is bringing back memories of David and his "pro" O-line.

Default Re: Hey guys, what do you think about Derek Carr..

Also watching bowl game. The announcers said OK if no pressure but if pressured he is no longer good. Well guess what he is playing in college against at best average talent. In the NFL he will feel the pressure and turn into I think something less than David Carr.

Of course we have Smith as our GM so I have no confidence in our draft.

The point is if you criticize any player for anything, you should use equal critique of all players. Just because you think McCarron has not been asked to carry a team does not mean he cannot.

Don't worry, they'd be worse off with McCarron.

As the other guy that 'experts' think will be a first round QB, thought I would bump this thread since TB, BB and JFF have active threads.

If we do trade down Carr will be in the mix somewhere.

Bob wants to make the best moves for the team, but he also wants to appease the fans I believe.

I'm a UH Alumni and am super biased towards Case Keenum, but that dude should not have got that long of a run being completely ineffective while Yates didn't even get a chance.

I don't believe Yates is good, but I believe that Bob wanted to appease the fans. Everyone in this thread knows if we drafted the brother of David Carr it would NOT be received well, even if he happened to be BPA at the time and we needed a QB.

I will stand firm saying there is a less than 1% chance he is drafted by the Texans despite what we do on draft day.

Futures: Fresno State QB Derek Carr

Want a glimpse into a quarterback’s mind? Watch his feet.

by Matt Waldman

Quote:
These nine plays illustrate both sides of Derek Carr. He’s a quarterback capable of quick decisions, high velocity throws with tight-window accuracy, and the skill to make positive plays under pressure. He also has an impulsive streak that can lead to inaccurate throws, poor ball placement, and bad decisions.

Carr’s play has grown on me as I study him in-depth. However, it’s not a ringing endorsement for a player a team is likely to coronate as its future starter in April. He’s the type of player I think would benefit most from a year or two on the bench behind a good starter like Philip Rivers, Tony Romo, Peyton Manning or Drew Brees, but I’m not expecting he’ll be this fortunate.

Default Re: Hey guys, what do you think about Derek Carr..

David Carr has done an excellent job of coaching his younger brother in what to do and how to act to most impress NFL teams, and it's working...

Carr is early to the field and always getting extra work in after practices. He's pulling WRs in with him, and each of the guys who play along are getting noticed for that. Carr's arm was head & shoulders above all others in yesterday's big winds, and he's taking coaching well. But the "intangibles" sales job is increasing his draft stock.

I do not see Carr as having the mind to run OB's system. Props to his brother David, though, for teaching him well and to Derek for listening and following directions.

Maybe he has chosen for himself to show the work ethic and willingness to go the extra mile that was the knock on David?

Will be interested to see where Carr's draft stock is at the end of the week.

I had the feeling he was drifting down the boards, maybe to the end of the first round somewhere but it seems he is showing as the best of the QBs at Senior Bowl.

Well, this is his competition at the Senior Bowl (with my opinion on their stock)....

Tajh Boyd - 2nd-4th round
Derek Carr - 1st-2nd round
David Fales - 3rd-4th round
Jimmy Garoppolo - 2nd-3rd round
Stephen Morris - 3rd-4th round
Logan Thomas - 4th-6th round

He should be the best one there. That said, I think he has definitely helped himself so far this week.

Carr 1.0 had all the physical tools to succeed int he NFL. If he had just taken on the heavy lifting of the job (late nights and film study), he could have been very good. But we all know how that turned out. So if Carr 2.0 is willing to correct that flaw, he looks like he has the physical tools to succeed also.

Just not here, I don't think.

Carr 1 had a good week of practice at the senior bowl . It was the game that should have been the omen .
