Week one training camp review: quarterbacks

The Raiders completely overhauled their quarterback corps in the offseason by drafting Derek Carr, trading for Matt Schaub and signing Trent Edwards to go along with second-year player Matt McGloin.

Lets take a look at how the Raiders quarterbacks are performing just one week into training camp.

Camp’s biggest winner: Matt Schaub. Starting quarterback Matt Schaub has completely shown why the Raiders traded for him and have confidence in him. Schaub has been very accurate thus far and made very little mistakes, despite Thursday’s practice. Schaub did encounter some troubles with interceptions on Thursday at the beginning but bounced back nicely with some solid throws.

Camp’s biggest surprise: Derek Carr. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise that Carr is a solid prospect but seeing his arm strength and game in person is a surprise. Carr has had a good camp in regards to decision making, and his arm certainly seems like a first-round talent. Carr could benefit from learning from Schaub and being eased into the offense.

Camp’s biggest loser: Matt McGloin. I would put Trent Edwards here but he had to have known that he was simply a camp arm when he was signed. Despite having a good camp and looking good at times, McGloin is the camp loser simply because he has gone from being the starting quarterback of the Raiders to seemingly the third-string quarterback.
