The Oakland Raiders made the first big swoop of the second round of 2014 NFL Draft when they selected Derek Carr with the 36th overall pick.

Carr now becomes the fourth Quarterback on the Raiders roster and taken by the franchise just a month after they traded with the Houston Texans for Matt Schaub.

It is the second straight year that the Raiders have traded for a new starting Quarterback and then drafted a younger talent a month later.

Last year they traded with the Seattle Seahawks for Matt Flynn but he was beaten out by the Seahawks newest acquisition Terrelle Pryor for the starting role last season.

Following the selection of Johnny Manziel by the Cleveland Browns last night, Carr and eventual Minnesota Vikings draftee Teddy Bridgewater were the head of the Quarterback class remaining last night.

Bridgewater went to Minnesota in the final selection of the first round and Carr found his home shortly into the second round.

It will be an interesting battle for the starting position throughout the season in Oakland, Schaub has been named starter but could very well lose his place should his performances not meet expectations.
