David Carr went No. 1 overall to the Houston Texans back in 2002 and 14 years later, despite it looking at one point possible, younger brother Derek Carr will not be going No. 1 overall to Houston. While he was the talk of the draft for what seems like a millisecond now, Derek Carr may end up falling out of the first-round this May but that hasn’t shaken his confidence.
After his private workout with the Cleveland Browns, Carr told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer that he believes he’s the best quarterback coming into this draft.
“In the most humble way you can answer that question, yes (I’m the best),” Carr told cleveland.com Tuesday in an exclusive interview. “Absolutely. There’s no doubt in my mind. That’s a tough one for me to answer because I don’t like talking about myself in that light, but to answer it, absolutely.”
He may not be that far off, as there isn’t a definitive line of separation between any of the prospects — at least talent-wise. Teddy Bridgwater, Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel are all being hyped more than Carr but they all seem similar to many scouts.
Still, Carr has some work to do in the NFL as not only does he need to become a leader and a champion but he must redeem the Carr family name in doing so.
