J.J. McCarthy impressed as the prime attraction at Michigan’s pro day

Nearly 200 NFL personnel crowded into the University of Michigan’s pro day workout on Friday. While the Wolverines had 18 players who had previously worked out at the NFL Scouting Combine, there was one clear prime attraction: quarterback J.J. McCarthy.

Now widely considered to be a top-10 pick, and perhaps top-5 overall selection, McCarthy did what quarterbacks are supposed to do at pro days. He threw with clean mechanics and accuracy while successfully executing the tightly scripted series of passes to various Wolverine targets.

Per sources in Ann Arbor, the head coaches and GMs of the teams with the first three picks in the draft — Chicago, Washington and New England — were all in attendance. All three are expected to select quarterbacks in next month’s draft.
