Oakland Raiders’ second-round pick Derek Carr is ready to play right now! Sitting for five years in the name of learning isn’t for all young quarterbacks. Everyone matures and develops in different departments of their lives at different times of their lives.
How early a quarterback succeeds is up to more than just the quarterback himself anyway. The situation he comes in under with his team has everything to do with his success level. It should also have everything to do with how soon you play young quarterback.
A solid veteran quarterback won’t even have success if the situation around him with the team isn’t right. But Carr is ready and the Raiders have a situation that gives him an opportunity to succeed right away.
