Derek Carr's Behind-The-Back Throw is Better Than Some Quarterbacks' Regular Passes

Sign Derek Carr up for And-One Football.

Derek Carr and the Oakland Raiders are looking to take a major leap and enter the stratosphere of playoff contender with a young but devastatingly talented core of Carr, running back Latavius Murray, wide receiver Amari Cooper and linebacker Khalil Mack. To do so, Carr will need to shine in his third year, building on an excellent sophomore season in which the Fresno State product threw for almost 4,000 yards and 32 touchdowns. If the video below is any indication, Carr will be torching DBs with both traditional throwing mechanics and, well, not-so-traditional methods.

Carr and rookie quarterback Connor Cook were screwing around after a recent practice when Carr decided to launch a behind-the-back, underhand pass to Cook, who was streaking across the field about 20 yards away. The pass was a perfect spiral, and Cook spiced things up by catching it with one hand.

Carr probably won't be busting out that throw during the regular season, but it makes for a very cool video.
