NFL Draft Rumors: Derek Carr to work out for Browns, Raiders, Rams, Titans & Vikings


Although the talk of the NFL Draft at the quarterback position mostly revolves around Blake Bortles of the Central Florida Knights, Teddy Bridgewater of the Louisville Cardinals and, of course, Johnny Manziel of the Texas A&M Aggies, one of the most intriguing and perhaps underrated prospects of the 2014 Draft is Fresno State Bulldogs’ signal-caller Derek Carr.

Several teams have taking a liking to Carr.

According to Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network, via Path to the Draft, Carr will work out for the Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams, Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings.

All of those teams makes sense. It is hard to believe Brian Hoyer is the answer in Cleveland. The Raiders traded for Matt Schaub, but that’s a stopgap. The Rams have all but given up on former top overall pick Sam Bradford. Both the Titans and Vikings selected quarterbacks, Jake Locker and Christian Ponder, in 2011, but neither have worked out.

Carr completed 453 of 659 passes for 5,082 yards with 50 touchdowns and eight interceptions last season.

    Not very good at this r u? The Rams are all in on Bradford.

    • Kevin Carpenter

      Agreed. And it’s not that hard to see the Browns giving Hoyer a shot this year either. Seems like this guy is just winging it. What’s the point?

    I want Carr to play for the Raiders. He is the only QB I have faith in
