FRESNO, Calif. - Near 100 degrees, sunny with a 100% chance of football - that Nappa Valley forecast should make Bakersfield native Derek Carr feel right at home.
"Obviously I have a long ways to go being a rookie but it's been great," Carr said from training camp on Monday.
The optimism of NFL training camp is a long cry from draft day, the younger brother of a once first overall pick saw the first round come and go without selection.
Derek watched his brother start as a rookie for a brand new team and set NFL records for sacks taken in a single season.
