Draft Scout Derek Carr News
11/15/15 - QB Derek Carr completed 29 of 43 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against Minnesota. He had his third straight 300-yard passing game and fifth of the season. Carr was intercepted twice and had a passer rating of 83.7.
11/01/15 - QB Derek Carr threw for 333 yards and a career-high-tying four touchdowns Sunday against the New York Jets. Carr completed 23 of 36 passes with no interceptions and had his fourth career 300-yard passing game, including three this season. He had a passer rating of 30.9. Carr is the fifth Raiders quarterback in franchise history and the first since Rich Gannon (Sept. 29, 2002 vs. Tennessee) to have 300 yards passing, four TDs and no sacks in a game.
10/25/15 - QB Derek Carr is growing into the job. At times last year, the quarterback looked every bit the rookie that he was, and he remains far from a finished product. Still, his production was spot on as he completed 24 of 31 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns -- without a turnover. Even more impressive than his gaudy 137.7 passer rating were the up-tempo way he ran the offense and the calm presence he had over the entire unit. Carr just might drive the Raiders to the playoffs in what looks like a watered-down AFC West.
10/19/15 - QB Derek Carr, who has a 93.9 passer rating through five games and whose yards-per-attempt average is up from 5.5 last year to 7.2 this year, said there was no magic wand responsible for his improvement.
"I'm definitely a lot more comfortable," Carr said. "The game has slowed down. Now I'm just playing football, trying my best to throw it exactly where I want to and all those things. One of my goals was to be more efficient. That's something (quarterbacks) coach Todd Downing has been hard on me about, and we're going to keep trying to improve as we go forward."
10/14/15 - QB Derek Carr is averaging 7.2 yards per pass attempt, up from the 5.5 figure that was the worst among starting NFL quarterbacks in 2014.
