. 485. Cp8. 8. 2023 Griese–Brees Quarterback of the Year Award Winner. QB. . JJ McCarthy . player. JJ McCarthy

Michigan's quarterback, JJ McCarthy, has been instrumental in leading his team to the playoffs. His passing accuracy and ability to make plays with his legs make him a dynamic quarterback prospect for the NFL draft. 

Season Statistics:

  • Completion Percentage: 74.2 percent
  • Passing Yards: 2,630
  • Passing Touchdowns: 19

Ideal Draft Position

JJ has shown he is pro-ready, but there is a to their QB at every style in this Draft. He will most likely be the 4th QB off the board behind Caleb Williams, Drake Maye and Jayden Daniels. McCarthy landing at 19 with the Bucs, or the match made in Wolverine heaven, the Lions, at 27th.

Rod Moore, Safety, Michigan

Michigan's safety, Rod Moore, has shown his worth in the team's defense. His ability to read the play and make critical tackles has been instrumental in Michigan's defensive efforts. Moore's consistent performance this season makes him a strong candidate for the NFL draft.

Season Statistics:

  • Total Tackles: 37
  • Interceptions: 4
  • Pass Deflections: 6

Ideal Draft Position

Rob Moore is another guy on the cusp of getting slept on and missing the first round, not because of his skill or draft-worthiness. He is the most complete safety prospect since Notre Dame's Kyle Hamilton, but Two safeties stand in his way: Kamren Kinchens and Tyler Nubin of Minnesota. However, I could see the Eagles making the grab at 32.
