14. Jamie Newman, QB, Georgia
Could this finally be the year Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock put their heads together to draft a new quarterback for the Raiders?
We will see.
I have personally felt the writing was on the wall now for a couple of years for Derek Carr, but apparently the Raiders are comfortable enough with him to continue building around him.
Carr has been a fine player for the Raiders, but has yet to reach the potential he showed early on in his career.
Jamie Newman is a really fun prospect to study as a 6-foot-4, 230-pound quarterback who had 26 touchdown passes and six rushing touchdowns last season at Wake Forest, where he really helped put the Demon Deacons back on the map as a legitimate football school.
He helped raise all boats and got noticed by one of the premier programs in college football, transferring to Georgia for the 2020 season.
He can throw accurately to every level of the field and while his consistency needs to improve, it stands to reason that Newman is going to make enough progress in his final collegiate season at Georgia to solidify a first-round draft status and he will undoubtedly impress teams with his work ethic.
