Texans Viewed Derek Carr As “An Absolute Non-Starter” In The 2014 Draft

The Houston Texans passed on Derek Carr twice in the 2014 draft and while some believed it had more to do with the family history in Houston, Yahoo’s Charles Robinson seems to indicate the decision was as much about Carr as a prospect – more specifically, the organization viewed Derek  as an “absolute non-starter” in the NFL.

Houston, instead, invested in Ryan Mallett – an experiment that flamed out as quickly as it started.

The Texans were rescued from Mallett by 30 year-old Brian Hoyer during this year’s playoff run. Hoyer performed admirably (19 TD, 7 INT) through injuries, but was awful in the playoffs, throwing four interceptions in a 30-0 home loss to the Chiefs.
