The Las Vegas Raiders decided it was finally time to move on from Derek Carr this season.
They released their Pro Bowl QB, and it didn’t take long before they agreed to terms with Jimmy Garoppolo.
Garoppolo will now be reunited with his former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who developed him during his first couple of years in the league, so the expectations are high in Sin City.
Nonetheless, Jimmy G is no young guy, and the Raiders need to consider all their options for the future.
And now that they currently have the seventh overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, they need to test the waters for all potential QB prospects they might be interested in.
With that in mind, the Raiders will host Kentucky QB Will Levis today, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Levis was considered one of the top 4 QB prospects in this class, but his draft stock has taken a slight hit over the past couple of weeks.
The physical traits are more than remarkable.
He’s got a Josh Allen-type frame with a strong arm and quick legs, and he is quite the privileged athlete, especially for a guy at the quarterback position.
Nonetheless, his lack of production in college makes scouts wonder whether he’s got what it takes to succeed at the next level, with some stating he could only do so much with that little talent around him.
So, will the Raiders take a chance on one of the most polarizing prospects in this class?
That remains to be seen.NEXT: NFL Insider Details Raiders' Awful Draft History
