QB David Carr - New York Giants
|6-3, 223||Born: 7-21-1979||College: Fresno State||Drafted: Round 1, pick 1|
Quick fantasy outlook: It's interesting to juxtapose Eli Manning's success against that of another former #1 overall pick - David Carr. Carr was selected 1st by the expansion Houston Texans in 2002 and started for five seasons compiling a 22-53 record while being sacked an astounding 249 times. Since then, Carr has rebuilt his career as a reliable backup quarterback. He's got the physical skills and mechanics to rival anyone in the game, but those early years have seemingly made him a bit gun shy in the pocket. Carr returned to the Giants in 2011 after spending a season in San Francisco. Carr has played sparingly (Manning has been an iron man), but has looked comfortable and efficient in limited action. Whether Carr has a future with the team beyond 2013 likely revolves around how quickly Ryan Nassib develops.
