Appearing on the "Haberman and Middlekauff" show at 957thegame.com, Derek Carr said a couple of NFL teams have expressed interest in possibly bringing David Carr in as a backup to mentor him if he ends up being their draft pick. The primary motive: If your brother is your backup, there's no concern about a potential rift within the locker room.
"The main reason they like it is because you're going to get a vet who wants to help the rookie, while at the same time, is gonna push me harder than anybody because he wants the best for me," Derek Carr said.
"There's no division in that locker room because we're both rooting for each other," he said. "We're not saying one thing behind each other's back."
Carr declined to say how he would react if his older brother ended up beating him out for the starting job, saying with a laugh, "We'd have to see."
Derek Carr isn't expected to be the No. 1 overall pick, as his brother was in 2002, but he generally is considered one of the top four QBs in the draft. Three of NFL.com's mock drafts have him as the No. 26 pick of the Cleveland Browns, for whom Carr had a private workout earlier this week. The Vikings, Raiders, Rams and Titans also have brought Carr in for a workout or visit.
