Derek Carr Full Speed Ahead
Raiders quarterback Derek Carr made his mark last season, passing for 3,937 yards with 28 touchdowns and six interceptions for a 96.7 passer rating, and leading the Raiders to a 12-4 record and the team's first playoff berth since 2002.
"From my conversations with him as a rookie to now, he's a guy that gets it," says Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.
"He's a guy that respects the game, respects the history of it and didn't come into the league as a guy that felt like he knows it all. As a veteran, you can appreciate that in a young guy."
A second-round draft choice by Oakland in 2014, Carr has 81 career touchdown passes and is one of five players in NFL history with at least 80 touchdown passes in his first three seasons. He is the only player in league history with at least 80 touchdown passes and fewer than 35 interceptions in his first three seasons.

Carr has passed for at least 3,000 yards and 20 touchdowns in each of his first three seasons and can join Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson as the only quarterbacks with at least 3,000 passing yards and 20 touchdown passes in each of their first four seasons in the NFL.
With 19 touchdown passes in 2017, Carr would become the sixth quarterback in NFL history to record at least 100 touchdown passes in his first four seasons.
