Bakersfield's Derek Carr, Fresno State QB, not drafted in first round

BAKERSFIELD - The NFL draft started at 5 p.m. Thursday and Bakersfield was looking to local Derek Carr.

Carr wasn't drafted in the first round.

The Fresno State quarterback has been called one of the top prospects, and was rumored to be sought by a handful of teams including the Browns, Raiders and Cardinals.

Carr passed for more then 5,000 yards his senior season and threw 50 touchdowns.

Derek Carr is following the legacy of his older brother, David, who was selected by Houston with the No. 1 pick in the draft in 2002.

Many analysts placed Derek ahead of Johnny "Football" Manziel of Texas A&M. Manziel was drafted in the first round by the Cleveland Browns.

23ABC's Casey Kerinan was at the Carr's house for the draft.
