ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Derek Carr lined up under center for his first NFL drill and immediately dropped the fsnap.
It was not quite the welcome-to-the-NFL moment he or the Oakland Raiders were looking for on the first day of his rookie minicamp Friday. But it did nothing to discourage anyone either.
With his strong arm, natural leadership skills and familial ties, Carr looked the part of an NFL quarterback at his first minicamp. He showed why the Raiders were so excited to get him with the fourth pick of the second round of the NFL draft last week.
