All the rookies are now signed. We got a chance to see the whole draft class in the video. A class that got up and down draft grades from the media still has the potential to be a good one.
Carr himself has more to prove to the fans than the coaches. His spot is solidified for now, but the expectation is playoffs or bust.
The excitement is building to see how everything pans out in the field. The optimism is high at this time of year, and the hope that it stays that way throughout the season.
