Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy and running back Blake Corum, 2 of the leaders of a group that went 15-0 and won the school’s very first national championship in 26 years, announced Sunday on social media that they are getting in the NFL draft.McCarthy, a junior from La Grange Park, Illinois, passed for 2,991 backyards with 22 touchdowns and four interceptions in 2023. He completed 72.3 %of his pass attempts. “After 3 incredible years at the University of Michigan, I have actually decided to get in the 2024 NFL draft,” McCarthy composed in a statement shared on social media.”I have spoken with many in and out of football, including my family, Coach [Jim] Harbaugh, and many whose opinions I considerably admire and regard. The decision was hard and how could it be– I enjoy my colleagues. I love my coaches and I like it here in Ann Arbor.” NFL scouts have mixed opinions of McCarthy because he played

in a run-heavy offense at Michigan. Some scouts are fascinated by his athleticism, decision-making and precision, while others have actually questioned his arm strength.ESPN expert Mel Kiper Jr. ranks McCarthy(6-foot-3, 202 pounds)as the No. 5 quarterback readily available in the draft. ESPN’s Jordan Reid projected McCarthy to be chosen with the No. 12 choice of the preliminary in his most current mock draft.Corum, a senior from Marshall, Virginia, is ranked as the No. 4 draft-eligible running back by Kiper; ESPN’s Field Yates ranked him as the No. 5 tailback. “Michigan, thank you for the 2-4 season, and thank you for the undefeated season,” Corum said in a video shared on social networks

.”Ever since I’ve been here, you all have actually been by our side repping the maize and blue. Every Saturday, the Big Home was packed. And if we played away, feel in one’s bones, y’ all rode deep. Thank you for being the best fans ever. “My four years here have actually pertained to an end, but I’m permanently grateful for the memories we developed. When I got hurt in 2015, I returned and assured y’ all I would bring a championship game home. That’s what Team 144 did.” Michigan, thank you for everything!! Onto the next chapter in my journey!! # 2024nfldraft pic.twitter.com/ue6W0GPGvm!.?.!— # 2 BeSavage(@blake_corum)January 14, 2024 This past season, Corum ran for 1,245 lawns
