Derek Carr’s brother has taken to Twitter to roast the Las Vegas Raiders’ second-year receiver Henry Ruggs III , who reportedly said his brother’s NFL career is over due to the quarterback’s injury.
Derek Carr’s brother, David Carr, took to Twitter on Wednesday to voice his displeasure over the selection of second-year receiver, Henry Ruggs III, by the Las Vegas Raiders in the third round of last week’s NFL Draft. David Carr, who played four years of football at Fresno State and was drafted by the Houston Texans in the seventh round of the 2006 NFL Draft, pointed out that his brother’s former teammate, wide receiver, Cordarrelle Patterson, was selected by the Minnesota Vikings with the 209th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

It must be hard for an NFL quarterback to listen to TV reporters criticize his wide receivers, even if the criticism is warranted. If the analyst in question is your brother, going back to the locker room should be even more embarrassing. That’s exactly what Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr had to deal with after his older brother, NFL analyst David Carr, approached the young player’s second receiver, Henry Raggs III.

At the Crimson Tide, he caught 98 balls for 1,716 yards and 25 touchdowns. However, he only caught the eye of NFL scouts during the 2020 NFL Draft. The speedy player scored a 4.27 in the 40-yard dash to confirm his top pick status. He was the first receiver selected by the Raiders at 12. He defeated other first-round receivers like fellow freshman Jerry Jody, Oklahoma’s C.D. Lamb and LSU’s Justin Jefferson. Ruggs has yet to prove he is the best WR in the 2020 class. His 452 yards receiving are the second most of any first round receiver. Only Jalen Reagor of the Philadelphia Eagles had fewer yards and missed five games due to injury.

On NFL Network’s NFL Total Access, Raiders QB Derek Carr’s brother, David, addressed Raggs by saying he was the NFL player to take the biggest step forward in 2021. Referring to information from his brother,David Carr toldRaggs: Derek] said: In training, he’s the best player I’ve ever played with. He’s a professional player. He’s great. He couldn’t get on the field and play fast. He does it in training. He just needs to make the transition, which he is clearly capable of once he understands where to be drafted and how this offense works. It will be dynamic, but it will have to do. David Carr’s opinion outweighs the brother of the average NFL QB. He was drafted by the Houston Texans in 2002 and played 10 years in the league. He was a big underdog in the draft, but his experience makes him a great NFL analyst.
Sophomore wide receivers often make a leap in their performance

Last season, Dionte Johnson of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Darius Slayton of the New York Giants and Deebo Samuel of the San Francisco 49ers (if healthy) all made it to their second seasons. However, three WRs made the jump last year as sophomores. Washington’s Terry McLaurin caught 29 more balls in his second year, and Tennessee titlist A.J. Brown improved his receptions, yards and touchdowns in his second year. The biggest jump in his second season, however, was D.K. Metcalfe of the Seattle Seahawks. Metcalfe caught 25 more balls on 29 targets and accounted for 403 yards. He also went from 7 to 10 touchdowns in his second season. If Ruggs can improve on his meager numbers from 2020 and repeat his sophomore season from any of the receivers listed here, Derek Carr and the Raiders will certainly be in good spirits. David Carr will probably feel good about it too.
