2014 NFL draft rumors: Oakland Raiders have 'massive crush' on Derek Carr

The Oakland Raiders recently traded a sixth-round pick to the Houston Texans in exchange for quarterback Matt Schaub, but they still may have some interest in one of the top signal-callers in the 2014 NFL draft class.

The Raiders are quite smitten with Derek Carr, according to David White of The Fresno Bee, who reports that Oakland has a "massive crush" on the Fresno State quarterback.

The Raider are not expected to select Carr with the No. 5 overall pick. Instead, they may attempt to trade back in the first round and land Carr further down.

If Oakland is able to move back in the first round, it will likely need to see Carr slide past the Minnesota Vikings, Tennessee Titans and other potential suitors for his services.

Regardless of whether the Raiders find a way to add Carr, Schaub will still be the favorite to be the team's starter for its season opener.
