Derek Carr continued to impress NFL coaches and scouts on the second day of Senior Bowl practices in Mobile, Ala.
On a windy Tuesday at Ladd Peebles Stadium, Carr's arm strength set him apart from the other two quarterbacks on the South roster.
The Fresno State record-setter consistently threw tight spirals and delivered passes accurately and on time during drills while teammates David Fales (San Jose State) and, to a lesser extent, Jimmy Garoppolo (Eastern Illinois) struggled with the conditions.
"I throw hundreds of balls every day," Carr told reporters afterward. "This is what I've been dreaming of since I was little. I know this is a job interview."
He added, "The wind's not a factor. If you throw it hard enough, it doesn't matter."
The Senior Bowl is the first in-person chance for NFL teams to evaluate prospects for the NFL draft, a process that will continue until May.
Carr is rated as a top-10 pick in some mock drafts. In others, he's projected to go outside the first round.
Reporters and scouts in Alabama noted Carr stayed on the field after practice Monday and Tuesday to work on patterns with Vanderbilt receiver Jordan Matthews.
Carr's off-the-field habits also have drawn notice.
"He sits in the front of the meeting room, takes meticulous notes, really into it," said Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley, who is coaching the South team. "He's done a great job."
• Tight end Marcel Jensen of Fresno State was removed from the South roster after suffering a groin strain at Monday's practice.
