The Houston Texans got their man in defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 overall pick. Now, as the second round starts on Friday evening, will the Texans do what many felt could never happen?
Will the Texans select Derek Carr with the first pick of the second round (No. 33 overall), as he’s the highest-rated quarterback remaining in the NFL draft?
Will the Texans select Derek Carr?
You read the correctly … it says Carr … the baby brother of former Texans No. 1 overall pick in 2002 and NFL bust David Carr.

The same David Carr who didn’t pan out well with the Texans. Remember, Derek Carr isn’t his brother.

Do you want Derek Carr as your next QB? Is he the type of player that can lead the Texans to the promised land?
The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Blake Bortles No. 3 overall, the Cleveland Browns selected Johnny Manziel with the 22nd selection and the Minnesota Vikings jumped ahead of the Texans at No. 32, the last pick of the first round, to select Teddy Bridgewater.
Here is what Derek Carr did as the Fresno State quarterback:
• 2013: 5,082 yards, 50 touchdowns, 8 interceptions
• Career: 12,842 yards, 113 TDs, 24 interceptions (four seasons)
At this point, maybe this is a “sign” for the Texans to finally get it all correct with the Carr family. This is so interesting, strange or weird how Derek Carr is available at 33rd overall, sitting there for the Texans to take as they are in need of a QB.
A QB they can groom for a season behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and get it right at the QB position.
It is just a thought, but maybe this happened for a reason. Maybe this is meant to be. Or maybe the Texans will look to Tom Savage of Pittsburgh.
Also, remember they could trade for Ryan Mallett as well from the New England Patriots … Friday will be fun.
