The Oakland Raiders drafted their possible quarterback of the future less than two months after acquiring a new starter.
The Raiders drafted Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr with the 36th overall pick in the NFL draft on Friday night to compete with presumptive starter Matt Schaub.
Oakland traded a sixth-round pick to Houston in March to acquire Schaub and immediately named him the starter.
David Carr was the first draft pick ever for the Texans in 2002 and started five seasons there before being let go.
Carr lasted until early in the second round and the Raiders pounced when he was still there despite having already added Schaub.
