At this point in the process, it seems pretty clear the Rams aren’t taking a quarterback high in the NFL draft. General manager Les Snead basically said as much a couple of weeks ago. But it still could happen at some point in the draft, perhaps somewhere in the middle rounds. In theory, the Rams could keep Kellen Clemens while drafting a prospect to groom as a backup or potential starter. Sam Bradford has only two years left on his contract, and it never hurts to think ahead or just be prepared for all contingencies — especially at the quarterback position. With that in mind there are several possibilities on display this week at the Senior Bowl. Some names are more familiar than others. At the top of the pecking order in Mobile is Derek Carr of Fresno State. If the last name coupled with the college sounds familiar, yes, Carr is the younger brother of former No. 1 overall draft pick David Carr. The younger Carr led the FBS in passing yards (5,083) and touchdown passes (50) this past season. But after a subpar bowl outing against Southern California, the strong-armed Carr is trying to stake his claim as a potential first-round draft pick. Before his arrival, Carr got some advice from older brother on what to expect during Senior Bowl week.
