By the time his career is over, Derek Carr could very well be at the top of this list. However, with only three seasons as the starter, the young signal caller still has some ground to gain of the other legendary Raiders quarterbacks.
Don’t get me wrong, though–Carr has done nothing but impress since landing in Las Vegas. The Raiders spent a second-round pick on him, and he’s spent his entire career proving he absolutely should have come off the board in Day 1.
The youngster from Fresno State has undergone remarkable growth during his three years in the NFL. He quickly earned the starting job as a rookie, and is now in the middle of the MVP race. On top of individual achievements, Carr has the Raiders headed to the playoffs for the first time in 14 years. Not an easy feat for a young quarterback on a rebuilt roster.
If Carr secures the Raiders a Lombari Trophy in 2017, he could very well vault his way to the top of this list. For now, though, he’ll need some more experience before further ascension is warranted.
