Chargers coach Jim Harbaugh has expressed confidence that his former Michigan quarterback, J.J. McCarthy, could potentially be the first overall pick in the upcoming draft. While this outcome is still unlikely, there is a growing belief that McCarthy may go as the second overall pick in the draft. DraftKings Sportsbook has adjusted McCarthy’s odds of being selected as the second pick from +2500 to +500, following his impressive Pro Day performance and increasing speculation that the Commanders may choose him.

The Commanders have the option to keep their selection at second overall, or they could potentially trade it to another team who may have interest in picking McCarthy. Many analysts believe that LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels is a top contender for the second overall pick, with Chris Simms ranking Daniels as the clear choice at No. 2 behind USC’s Caleb Williams.

With just one month until the draft commences in Detroit, the anticipation continues to build as fans and experts await to see where top prospects like McCarthy and Daniels will land in the first round. The draft night will ultimately reveal which players go to which teams, and the excitement is palpable as teams make their selections and shape their rosters for the upcoming season.
