If you guys missed the Derek Carr press conference, it was great. He was lose, relaxed, joking around with the media, and sounded great. He gets unfairly judged because of how his brother preformed, and he talked about how he and his brother are just different people. He answered questions about his game against USC, talked about why he isnt throwing at the combine, and much more. He said he has been watching NFL game film since he was 12 with his brother who was a QB at the time for the Texans, as everyone knows, and that he will out work anybody, which we saw at the senior bowl where he would stay after. He talked about how after he watched tape at age 12, he could tell when blitzes were coming based on how teams lined up, all at age 12. This kid lives, and breathes football, but is very laid back and relaxed with the media. These are qualities that Mike Zimmer and Rick Spielman love. He also has a huge arm that Turner loves, and can make every throw. He also excels throwing through winds and bad weather, which he will need at TCF Bank next year. He does have some negatives, but I think people are judging him based on his brother, which is unfair. Is he good enough to take at 8? Should the Vikes trade back to get him or wait till the second to get him? Will the Jaguars take him at 3? Only Rick knows.
He also talked about his son almost dying, and that he wants to come in day 1 and compete to get his team a championship.
