Could J.J. McCarthy Overtake LSU’s Jayden Daniels as Second Overall Draft Pick?

J.J. McCarthy’s chance of being the second overall draft pick significantly increases.

In recent news, Chargers coach Jim Harbaugh has expressed confidence in his former Michigan quarterback, J.J. McCarthy, by stating that he will be the first pick in the upcoming draft. While this may be unlikely, there is a growing belief that he could go as the second pick. DraftKings Sportsbook has adjusted their odds for McCarthy to be the second pick from +2500 to +500 following his impressive Pro Day workout and increasing rumors that the Commanders may choose him due to his national championship win in January.

However, many experts and analysts believe that LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels could be, or should be, the second overall pick. Chris Simms has ranked Daniels as the clear number two behind USC’s Caleb Williams. The anticipation for the draft is growing as we are exactly one month away from the start of the draft in Detroit. It will be interesting to see where each player lands in the first round and how the selections play out. The speculation and excitement surrounding the draft continue to build as fans eagerly await the announcement of each team’s picks.
