Michigan QB J.J McCarthy is opting out of his senior year and has declared for the 2024 NFL draft. McCarthy has been the starting quarterback for the Wolverines since he won the battle against Cade McNamara for the starting gig back in 2022. McCarthy played 2 seasons as the starting quarterback for Michigan, McCarthy finished his career with Michigan with a completion percentage of 68% throwing for 6226 yards, 49 touchdowns with 11 interceptions. McCarthy led the undefeated Wolverines to the 2023 National Championship.
McCarthy was rumored to truly be 50/50 on whether or not he would declare, so this news may have been surprising to some. There are, indeed, a lot of quarterback needy teams out there, so McCarthy’s camp must know there are some serious suitors for him. McCarthy’s camp were likely persuaded this way because they are hearing teams are willing to give up late first or early second round draft capital to acquire him.
