The Oakland Raiders have selected my No. 5 overall player in the 2014 NFL draft, quarterback Derek Carr from Fresno State. Carr boasts the strongest arm of any of the top-tier quarterbacks in this draft class and is a major steal for a Raiders organization that is absolutely killing this draft.
With Carr on board, the Raiders have picked up two of my top-seven players.
If you had concerns about general manager Reggie McKenzie, I am pretty sure he quieted those big time over the last 22-plus hours. Tremendous pick.
