2014 NFL Mock Draft: Derek Carr projected to the Cleveland Browns

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Another mock draft is up over at Mocking the Draft, and they have Derek Carr going to Cleveland.

Another week in the NFL means a new draft order and of course a new mock draft from Mocking the Draft. The past two mock drafts from these guys had Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr going No. 5 and No. 2. Then there is also the news that Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater could return to school and could make Carr the top quarterback overall.

The latest mock draft has Carr being the second quarterback taken since Bridgewater has not said if he is returning to school or will enter the NFL Draft. With that uncertainty places Carr going No. 5 overall to the Cleveland Browns, a team that really needs a quarterback.

Here is what Mocking the Draft has to say about the selection of Carr:

The Browns have a glaring need at quarterback and have shown clear tendencies of a vertical offense this season when they have the pieces to execute. No quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft fits that style of offense better than Derek Carr. Carr has made strides as a senior, showing the best arm talent and deep ball accuracy in the draft. He still struggles in a muddled pocket and is tough to project because of the offense he plays in (which limits him to screens and deep passes), but he has a ton of raw ability. Imagine Carr throwing deep balls to Josh Gordon? I rest my case.

Seeing Carr to Gordon would be a great combination. Browns, or NFL, fans should take a look at what Carr has done this year with a NFL caliber wide out he has in Devate Adams, as well as Isaiah Burse and Josh Harper, both who should good a look at the next level.

It seems that baring some drastic change that Carr will be at worst a top-10 pick.
