After leading the Michigan Wolverines to an 15-0 record and the CFP National Championship, John Harbaugh took his coaching talents back to the NFL as head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers.  He won’t be the only member of the champs headed to the NFL.

With the 2024 NFL Draft just days away, most of the rumors and NFL Mock Draft frenzy has centered around quarterback J.J. McCarthy.  As the highest ranked Michigan prospect, McCarthy is expected to go early in the first round.  But, what about the rest of the 2024 Michigan Wolverines class?

In this 7-round 2024 NFL Mock Draft, we look at where each player will be taken, and which team will select them.

2024 NFL Draft: J.J. McCarthy apart of a big trade at the beginning of the first round

NFL Draft Trade

The Minnesota Vikings use the additional first round pick they gained from the Houston Texans in a package to acquire the No. 8 overall pick from the Atlanta Falcons. 

QB, Michigan. 8. . J.J. McCarthy. J.J. McCarthy. player. J.J. McCarthy. . . 60

The Vikings will trade up to select J.J. McCarthy in the 2024 NFL Draft.  I what would be the best fit for the Michigan QB, McCarthy will have weapons all around him and will have a head coach in Kevin O’Connell who will put him in the best position to succeed as an NFL QB.

In leading the Wolverines to the 2024 CFP National Championship, McCarthy showed both toughness and leadership, while delivering the ball when necessary to the likes of wide receivers Roman Wilson and Cornelius Johnson.  Imagine what he will do with Justin Jefferson and Jordan Addison

A team that already has the talent to be a playoff contender except at QB, gets a signal caller who will be adequate enough to get them there in 2024.
