Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr is using this weekend’s Las Vegas Bowl to not only end his college career on a high note but raise his NFL Draft stock as well. Carr still has the Senior Bowl to boost his stock and it’s starting to look like he’ll need it given the performance of his team in the Las Vegas Bowl so far.

If NFL scouts are watching, they’ll want to skip a bubble screen pass in the second quarter that saw Carr put wide receiver Davante Adams right in the line of fire. Carr threw a perfect pass but everything else about this play hurt Fresno State in more than one ways — specifically Davante Adams.

It hasn’t been a storybook finish so far for Carr and the Bulldogs but the game is only half over. The score seems insurmountable at this point but Carr has a chance to prove his worth and lead this team back. He’ll need to avoid short passes that get his wide receivers laid out though.
