Fresno State QB Derek Carr was the top-rated player on the Raiders' board heading into Round 2, according to CSNBayArea's Scott Bair.
Oakland didn't anticipate selecting a signal-caller until later on, but they were surprised -- as were many draft experts -- that Carr fell out of Round 1 and into their laps. The value at No. 36 couldn't be ignored, so the Raiders flipped the script. Carr owns an outstanding arm, good athleticism and NFL bloodlines. However, he struggles in a muddied pocket and plays with shoddy mechanics. He's a good developmental prospect to sit for a year behind newly-acquired Matt Schaub. If the Raiders can fill the holes in his game -- and it won't be easy, but it's certainly possible -- they'll have a star on their hands. May 10 - 11:58 AM
