It looks like the Oakland Raiders are planning to draft a quarterback. They have workouts scheduled with both Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins.
The two are believed to be the top quarterbacks in the draft. Despite this fact, Raiders head coach, Jon Gruden, said on Monday that Derek Carr would be the team’s starter.
Via Pro Football Talk:
“Yeah, he’s going to be our quarterback,” Gruden told Jim Trotter of NFL Network. “I’m not going to address all the rumors. I could care less about the rumors, you know? He threw for 4,100 yards. Threw for almost 70 percent in a very dire, tough circumstance. So I’ve got a lot of confidence in Carr, what he can do with Antonio Brown, with Tyrell Williams, with Trent Brown coming in here to help our offensive line, with a better defense. I’m excited about Carr.”
Carr’s the Raiders starter for now. If they draft a quarterback in the first round you can his days as the team’s starter are numbered. They aren’t going to use a first round pick on a backup.
