QBs Murray, Haskins to work out for Raiders

Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Kyler Murray will work out privately for the Oakland Raiders on Monday, according to a report.
Albert Breer of the MMQB said the workout will take place in Dallas. On Tuesday, the Raiders’ brass will travel to Columbus, Ohio, to watch former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins in action, he added.
As recently as last week at the league meetings in Phoenix, Raiders coach Jon Gruden said veteran David Carr will be his quarterback in 2019.

“Yeah. He’s going to be our quarterback,” Gruden said in an interview with NFL Network from the meetings. “I’m not going to address all the rumors. I could care less about the rumors.
“He threw for 4,100 yards. Threw for almost 70 percent (completion rate) in a very dire, tough circumstance. So I’ve got a lot of confidence in Carr; what he can do with Antonio Brown, with Tyrell Williams, with Trent Brown coming in here to help our offensive line.”
Gruden acknowledged last week that the Raiders would hold workouts with quarterbacks of interest as part of its due diligence before the draft.
“We’re going to meet with a lot of guys at every position,” Gruden said. “We’re not going to look past anybody at any position. We have the fourth pick in this draft and we’re going to make sure we get it right.”
The Raiders also hold the Nos. 24 and 27 picks, as well as the No. 35 pick (second round), so they have wiggle room to trade up for a quarterback if they desire.
The NFL draft will be held April 25-27 in Nashville, Tenn.
