Carr watched the first round picks with family in Bakersfield and then he and brother, David. spoke to the media afterwards. “I would like to have gone higher, but I’ve been through so much in my life that I’m not going to let something like football bring me down,” said Derek.
Derek and David both spoke about their faith in God and their belief that He has a plan for them.
The draft resumes Friday afternoon with the first pick going to the Houston Texans, the team that drafter David as the first pick out of Fresno State.
