Raiders UDFAs 2012: Wide Receivers

via www.beloit.edu


As expected, Reggie McKenzie and the Raiders wasted no time once the draft ended in moving on undrafted free agents. Among them, 6'3", 238lb. TE Derek Carrier from Beloit college. These stories from fellow SB Nation affiliates report interest in the Wisconsin native from teams like the Broncos, Jaguars, and Seahawks, but it appears the Raiders have won his services for now. Here's a link to the Beloit Buccaneers Athletics page with a profile.

Hit the jump for more on Carrier, Brandon Carswell, and Thomas Mayo.

Another small school recruit, among his NFL size and speed profile, Carrier boasts experience playing some HB, FB and WR as well as TE. He has some impressive measurables from his pro day:
