NEW YORK -- For once, Derek Carr didnt emulate his older brother. David Carr was the top overall pick in the 2002 NFL draft, the first player ever taken by the Houston Texans. Derek, who also went to Fresno State and, like his elder brother enters the league with a wife and child, went 36th overall when Oakland selected him in the second round Friday night. Eleven years younger than David, Derek Carr also must hope he gets better protection with the Raiders than David did with Houston. David Carr never reached the expectations of a No. 1 pick, in great part because he was sacked so often during his time with the Texans. "I learned everything that he did right and everything that he did wrong," Derek Carr said. "He told me that if he could do anything, he hopes he made the path smoother for me as I transition into the NFL." Derek Carr rewrote the Bulldogs record book, throwing for more than 10,000 yards and 100 touchdown passes. He led Fresno State to consecutive Mountain West Conference titles in his final two seasons and passed for 5,082 yards and 50 touchdowns in 2013. He guided a spread offence that relied on his quick decision making, fast release and ability to move in the pocket. All in a season where his son was born with a serious problem with his intestines a month before he stepped on the field. Oakland acquired veteran Matt Schaub to be its starter, but he will get a serious push from Carr. In other early picks Friday: -- Houston had 20 hours to think about the first pick of the second round, then went for a blocker. To barely a whimper of reaction from the Radio City Music Hall crowd, the Texans selected UCLA guard Xavier Sua-Filo. He joins the first overall pick, defensive disrupter Jadeveon Clowney of South Carolina, in Houston. The two of them can have fun colliding against each other in minicamps and training camp. The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Sua-Filo, who went on a Mormon mission while in college, also has played tackle. -- The Cowboys took Boise State defensive end Demarcus Lawrence, who they hope will emulate their departed sacks leader with the same first name, DeMarcus Ware, now with Denver. "Im my own Demarcus," Lawrence said. "I dont like to try to be nobody else. Im going to be me, and Im going to do it well." -- Cleveland, more active than any team in the first round, added a protector for Johnny Manziel by grabbing guard Joel Bitonio of Nevada, who also can play tackle or centre. The Browns caused the biggest stir on opening night when they traded up to No. 22 to get Johnny Football. "I think hes a heck of a quarterback," Bitonio said. "Hopefully, he comes in and hes ready to compete and just ready to work and do well for the Cleveland Browns." The teams already were busy on the trade block, with five in the first 75 minutes of the second round. There were only five all through the opening round on Thursday. It took 54 selections, a draft record, for a running back to go. Bishop Sankey of Washington was chosen by the Titans, who cut Chris Johnson this spring. Two more went in the next three selections: Jeremy Hill of LSU to Cincinnati, and Carlos Hyde of Ohio State to San Francisco. Tyson Chandler Rockets Jersey .J. -- Patrick Sharp is on one of those streaks. Anthony Bennett Jersey . Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Raptors have traded forward Steve Novak along with a second-round pick to the Utah Jazz in exchange for guard Diante Garrett - who will then be waived. https://www.rocketsrookiesshop.com/Geral...Edition-Jersey/. Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone dismissed Tuesdays massive anti-government protest in Manama as "a lot of kids having a go at the police." "I dont think its anything serious at all," Ecclestone was quoted as saying in The Guardian newspaper on Wednesday. Tracy McGrady Rockets Jersey .
