McKenzie's decision to trade for former Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub has given the Raiders leeway when it comes to the whole "draft a quarterback" narrative.
According to David White of The Fresno Bee, the Raiders have expressed interest in Fresno State QB Derek Carr.
But based on Schaub's arrival, adding a QB during the latter stages of the draft could ultimately be the direction this program decides to goes in.
Finding a player in the seventh round who can contribute right away isn't an easy task—especially a quarterback.
Of all the "late-round" signal-callers, Pittsburgh's Tom Savage is a guy who has a ton of physical attributes that are appealing.
On film, he's showcased the ability to get the ball out quickly and efficiently. Equipped with outstanding arm strength, Savage can go out and make any throw he has to.
Like the bulk of the QB prospects who come out of the draft, Savage has areas of his game he needs to improve on.
One major concern that pops up on tape is the difficulties he has dealing with pressure.
If he can improve and learn the nuances of the position, Savage would be a great late-round pick who could turn into a heck of a field general.
Comparing him to Troy Aikman, NFL.com's Gil Brandt dubbed Savage as "The best QB prospect you've never heard of."
Savage won't start this season barring an unforeseen string of injuries. Even so, what he can do, is shore up the position from Day 1 and perhaps over time grow into a legitimate starter.
