Maybe the Raiders can finally hit on #1 pick QB. They need redemption after Russell and Marinovich

Derek Carr has already won over a much maligned locker room and has performed okay with an awful supporting cast. He may not be Hall of Fame material, but give him a LT and some playmakers on offense and they start looking like competitors in the AFC West, especially when Manning retires in the next two to three years. Trade down and pick up some draft picks that can be easily convertible to key offense pieces like guards, tight ends and role receivers. Pick up LT Peat with your new first rounder and the Raiders will look mighty dangerous

Actually LT Donald Penn, along with rookie LG Gabe Jackson, has been the only bright spot this year, so perhaps you could count on him for next year too and grab either a skill position player (Cooper or Gurley) or a defensive stud to pair with Khalil Mack (Leonard Williams or Gregory, depending who's available).

That's fair, Penn has been good, I always feel like Offensive line is the best way to build, Penn is 31, which isnt necessarily young, but a new young lineman can last on a team for the next ten years, a WR or RB can dominate and fizzle out within 4 or 5, so a complete rebuild in my opinion can wait on WR or RB. My worry would be that Carr could get hurt or go the way of his brother if the offensive line doesn't remain the offense's strong point. A Defensive player might work out, but another DE/OLB seems like overkill with so many holes in the roster. If they go defense, I would think about a safety or ILB that can be a real leader/"QB of the defense". That being said, I think Peat would be better, because you can stash him at RT to learn and then shift him over once things get into gear

Carr has been good. The raiders need to refuel in so many areas, more picks is the best way to do that

The Raiders need talent in almost every position, and Carr has played reasonably well considering he has literally no running game and below average receivers.

Derek Carr is a baller with no weapons or offensive line. How about build that defense, OL, and WR position via FA and the draft. The Raiders need to build through the draft and get starters through FA.

Because Carr is more than capable. They need picks this year and to strengthen their defense and plan their future around Carr. They need to focus on ways to give him support and stop looking for a splash.

Carr has played admirably for a Rookie Qb with no one else on the offensive side of the ball. No need to get a QB #1st overall, trade down, pick up Amari Cooper and a separate pick.

Develop Carr and get better overall with Gregory or a LT.

Leave Carr alone and let him play. We need to get him some weapons and some protection. The D is solid.

Derek Carr has shown flashes, there's no need to get another QB a year after drafting a pretty good one.

The Raiders need to improve at so many positions right now that they would be able to get a treasure trove of picks back in a trade from a team that is truly desperate for a QB. Derek Carr has played well for the most part, though he still has a lot more developing to do. However, the Raiders have huge needs on both sides of the ball and I think they would do well to get Carr some more weapons and to improve his protection. They definitely need pass rushers, but it is very easy to undo a young QB if he doesn't have support, so if I were the Raiders, I would consider trading down to be able to draft Gurley or Cooper.

They have more pressing needs and are getting good value out of Carr

The raiders have holes at almost every position and Carr has proven to show some upside. Draft a playmaker at WR, a pass rusher or an OL. You have to build from the inside out.

Carr just needs a chance, and some defensive pieces to keep him from constantly playing from behind. While he could use some offensive weapons that have some tread left on the their tires and/or some talent, too, the defense is the need better addressed here. The Raiders are bad enough to where they are best served adding picks over picking #1 overall.

The Raiders aren't terrible because they have a bad quarterback. They're terrible because there are multiple positions of need that have to be upgraded. Derek Carr needs more than 1 year to show his ability, and picking up more draft picks will give the Raiders a better chance at becoming competitive.

Carr has all of the tools to be the Raiders QB of the future. He has superb arm strength and is able to make any throw on the field , as well as being very mobile. He reminds me a lot of Aaron rodgers, give him a line and a find a young TE or WR and he raiders could have a good offense and start competing. In a time where rookie QBs are thrown into the fire for not leading their teams to the playoffs and posting rookie Cam or RG3 like numbers, he's done well with what he has and has made a horrible raiders team even better if you can believe that.

If someone comes up with right deal, of course, pull the trigger. How many pieces on this roster are irreplaceable? Can't be more then 3-4 right now and not much on the skill players.

Carr is probably the only bright spot on their offense and has proven to be a capable NFL QB. Build around him on offense and model your draft plan after the 2012 rebuilding Colts, who absolutely killed it in the draft.

Mariota is overrated as a Pro Prospect. Stick with Carr and get good players around him. This team needs PICKS!!!
