So far so good.. Raiders draft QB Carr in 2nd round..

The Silver and Black drafted their possible quarterback of the future less than two months since landing Matt Schaub from the Texans..  After taking a truly game changing player in the first round with possibly the best pass rusher in years ( Khalil Mack ) Oakland may have made a “steal” in this years draft with Derek Carr from Fresno State with the 36th overall pick in tonight’s second round..

Oakland traded a sixth-round pick to Houston in March to acquire Schaub and immediately named him the starter. In an interesting twist, Schaub replaced Carr’s older brother, David, as starter in Houston.   Derek’s brother was the first draft pick ever for the Texans in 2002 and started five seasons there before being let go.

 Carr,  one of the most productive quarterbacks in college football last season,  threw for 5,083 yards and 50 touchdowns with only eight interceptions in a spread style offense at Fresno State that included many quick screens and played almost exclusively in the shotgun. He also won the 2013 Sammy Baugh Award, which goes to the nation’s top passer..

Looking forward to round 3, the Raiders have the 3rd pick in the third round to take care of tonight.. It will be the 67th overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft.. Stay tuned for more updates here on WWW.RAIDERSGAB.COM !!!

    Two solid picks, both players were not supposed to be available when we picked. Reggie and Coach Allen have their head on straight!
