FOXBORO -- When Jimmy Garoppolo and Derek Carr were teammates playing for the South squad in the Resee's Senior Bowl back in January, there would have been no way for them to predict they'd be seeing each other again eight months later.
Garoppolo, of course, ended up being drafted by the Patriots in the second round with the No. 62 overall pick. Carr went at the top of the second round with pick No. 36 to the Oakland Raiders.
They were two teams that appeared to be stuck at opposite ends of the NFL spectrum, something that would have a significant impact on the paths of both young signal-callers.
Before the regular season began, Garoppolo had won the job backing up his favorite player Tom Brady.
Carr, on the other hand, wasn't afforded the luxury of taking a professional red shirt year. He's the starting quarterback for the 0-2 Raiders and will be the focus of the New England defense when it holds its home-opener on Sunday.
There won't be much time to reminisce about their short-lived experience as teammates, but Carr spoke on Wednesday about how he and Garoppolo became friendly while working together during the week of the Senior Bowl.
"He’s a good dude," Carr said. "We had a great time. We had a great QB room, that’s for sure. We had a great time. He’s obviously very talented. He’s in a great situation. He’s going to be a great player, there’s no doubt in my mind. He did great things in the preseason, and he’ll continue to do great things."
