It's election day. And appropriately enough, it's the midterms because the Raiders are halfway through the season. So, let's vote on who you think is the Raiders Rookie of the Midterm.
Here are the candidates:
Derek Carr - Started all eight games at quarterback this season. He has thrown for 1711 yards with 11 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions. He has completed 60.7% of his passes with a passer rating of 79.8.
T.J. Carrie - Seventh round rookie has one of the three team interceptions. He got the pick in week four against the Dolphins and became the team's nickel cornerback in week six following the bye week. He got the start in week nine with the injury to Carlos Rogers. He also has been the Raiders return man on both punts and kicks much of the season, averaging 26.2 yards per kick return and 9.7 yards per punt return.
Justin Ellis - Has started six games this season ahead of incumbent starter, Pat Sims. In rotation with Sims, he has 13 tackles on the season (9 solo).
Gabe Jackson - Jackson has been the team's starting left guard all season, with fair to middling work in run and pass blocking. He has not given up a sack this season.
Khalil Mack - Leads the NFL among 3-4 outside linebackers in tackles and run stops. He has no sacks yet but his 23 quarterback hurries are third among all linebackers.
