2014 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about Derek Carr: Fresno State, 6023 214 4.69. Three-year starter. He led the country last fall with 5083 yards passing, completing 68.9% of his passes for 50 touchdowns and only 8 interceptions. A classic drop back passer with good accuracy and a quick release. Played in a spread scheme that had a variety of screens and horizontal routes. Rarely passed vertically. Fundamentally sound stepping into his passes. Good touch on fade routes. Has the arm strength to make all the required NFL passes. Knows where his outlet blitz beater receivers are located. Keeps his eyes down the field reading coverage. Not a scrambler or zone read quarterback. Younger brother of former number one pick and NFL journeyman, David Carr. Has a tendency to force the ball or make an off target pass when under pressure. Appeared to get rattled in the pocket versus SMU in the 2012 Sheraton Hawaii Bowl and versus USC in the Las Vegas Bowl. Pass rush pressure is a factor in his pocket foot mechanics. Struggles to make the first rusher miss. Lacks consistent escapability. Will step back instead of into passes at times. Has not seen great competition. 2013 stats: 454/659, 5083 passing yds, 68.9%, 50 TD, 8 INT. Did not throw at Combine. OSR:5/18. Second/third round. (A-31 1/2, H-9 1/8, SS-4.20, VJ-34.5).
