FANTASY SPORTS BOSS NFL DRAFT GUIDE REVISITED: DEREK CARR

Just for fun we went back and took a look at some of the profiles we did for our 2015 NFL Draft Guide which was a best-seller and was at the time out latest analysis and projection of the upcoming collegiate class.  One such guy we had a very good grade on was Fresno State QB Derek Carr.  Here is what we wrote word-by-word then.  Mel Kiper eat your heart out.

"Derek Carr (Fresno State) 6-3 215 4.78 Yes he is the brother of former number 1 overall pick David Carr out of the same school.  While Derek won't go number 1, he is expected to be a mid-to-high first round pick.  Will no doubt give front offices pause given his last name and for the fact his brother was a sizable draft bust.  However Derek has massive arm strength that is the envy of the rest of the QB class.  Was tremendous in making and completing sideline outs which are among the toughest passes a quarterback has to make at the next level.  Has the accuracy to go with the big arm as Carr owns the school record for completion percentage.  Rapid release.  Not the athlete David was however.  Will be a pure pocket passer who doesn't have the best feet.  Could turn out to be the best QB in the class however.
