Default David Carr Scouting Report from 2002

Quote:
Positives: Excellent size. Good all-around athlete. Top competitor. Legitimate tough guy. Has tremendous poise. Really stands in against the rush. Well respected by his teammates and coaches. Mature and confident without being cocky. Has improved by leaps and bounds and became a franchise-type player on the college level in ’01. Even in Fresno State’s three losses, he put up big numbers and got his team into the endzone. Excellent passer with a very strong and generally very accurate arm. Has good timing and anticipation of receiver. Makes some incredible throws and can really thread the needle. Can throw every pass in the book and really zing the deep out. Sets up well and has a lightning-quick release. Generally throws a nice, tight spiral. Can throw the touch passes. Reads coverages and shows good judgment. During the ’01 regular season had a 42-7 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Played very well against teams from major conferences and in the biggest and best games on his team’s schedule. Made his teammates better players and got the ball into the endzone. Had a strong practice week at the Senior Bowl.

Negatives: Semi-sidearm, unusual, three-quarter throwing motion. Has a very low release point, about shoulder level. Will get balls batted down, which could be huge problem, since so many teams use so many three- and five-step drops. Is basically a line-drive passer and might be better off if he put more air under some of his throws. Is not quite as mobile as you would like and is not a super athlete and improviser. Average scambler and is no Donovan McNabb as a runner. Can be inconsistent throwing the ball. Will force some and make some bad reads. Was brought along beautifully by the Fresno State staff and has not faced a lot of adversity, so you cannot be sure how well he can handle it. Did bounce back from the Ohio State disaster in 2000. In Fresno State’s two regular-season losses in ’01, he was in a position to lead John Elway-type comebacks but did not do it.

Summary: Has a chance to become a premier NFL quarterback if his release point does not lead to too many problems and he is brought along and utilized correctly. Could be the type of player you can build a team around if he is developed correctly.

He is the type of QB that has no business being on an expansion team.. as we saw firsthand. "Brought along and utilized correctly and..... developed correctly" are the operable phrases

ANALYSIS
Positives: Strong, well-built athlete with good body definition (rangy) … Sets up quickly and is ready to throw in an instant … Has good mechanics and an incredibly fast release … Shows accuracy on his long tosses and has a very lively arm in the short areas … Very composed under pressure, in the Brett Favre mold … Mature and confident field leader who is well-respected by teammates and very competitive with the opposition … Tactful in his actions, but will not hesitate to "correct" a teammate when needed … Throws a catchable ball, putting impressive touch with zip to make it easy for his receivers to haul in the ball … Displays tremendous velocity with proper timing when he airs out the long bomb, getting optimum effort behind his powerful arm … Has the vision to easily pick up the stunts and scans the field well, feeling the pressure quickly to avoid the rush while maintaining his composure … Has a three-step release point and will take the sack rather than force the ball into traffic … Shows the ability to locate the secondary targets when the primary ones are covered … Very effective scrambler in the Donovan McNabb mold, but his maturity allows him to be patient as he first waits for the play to develop … Throws the ball with a tight spiral and makes proper reads when scanning downfield … Can throw off his back foot when making his drops … Sets, drifts and settles in the pocket, displaying a soft touch to feather the ball over the defender's head … Makes proper checks at the line and is very alert in avoiding the rush … Has good rotation on the ball … When sequencing through his receivers, he can drop his arm to three-quarters and zing the ball.

Negatives: While he shows accuracy on his long passes, his arm strength is adequate, as he tends to arc his deep attempts … Holds the ball too long, inviting the sack, rather than dumping it off or throwing it away … Makes proper checks, but does not have a variety of throws … Needs to improve his pass drop, as he does a lot of three-step motion and will hold the ball a little too long, taking the sack rather than throwing it away.

I assume that development means correcting poor mechanics. If I recall correctly, the Texans coaching staff worked with Carr on this but he failed to adapt.

I'm sure certain people on this board disagree with this, unless they think it was beat out of him.

I guess Capers and Casserly didn't read the " Could be the type QB you look for if DEVELOPED CORRECTLY."
