#5. QB Derek Carr

Carr was selected as the 36th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by the then-Oakland Raiders. From the outset, Carr demonstrated his potential as an NFL quarterback, quickly earning the starting role in his rookie season.

In his first year, he threw for an impressive 3,270 yards and 21 touchdowns, setting multiple franchise rookie records. It was evident that the Raiders had found their franchise quarterback, and Carr's career was off to a promising start.

He continued to put up impressive numbers, earning his first Pro Bowl selection in the 2015 season after throwing for 32 touchdowns and 3,987 yards. While he has had his fair share of struggles, Carr is the Raider's all-time passing leader by a wide margin and easily the best quarterback to come out of the 2014 draft.
