ESPN's John McTigue advises the Raiders to replace Derek Carr and select Oregon's Marcus Mariota in next month's draft.
Carr, the 36th overall pick in 2014, posted promising superficial stats as a rookie but finished 28th out of 33 qualified QBs with a 38.4 Total QBR (ranked 15th, between EJ Manuel (38.4) and Geno Smith (35.9), out of 27 qualifying rookie performances since 2006). "Mariota carries the potential of a franchise quarterback, something Carr has yet to display at either level," McTigue wrote. "In college Carr logged three full seasons as Fresno State's quarterback and never posted a QBR season higher than 77.0. By comparison, Mariota's worst QBR in three seasons as Oregon's starter was 86.2." The Raiders, picking No. 4, might not even get the opportunity to tab Mariota. An NFL GM told CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora that he's certain Mariota will be the No. 2 pick in the draft. At the moment, that scenario seems most likely, whether the Titans pull the trigger or trade the pick to someone who will. Mar 27 - 2:24 AM
