J.J. McCarthy will be somewhat limited at NFL scouting combine

Though it appeared that Michigan football quarterback J.J. McCarthy would be fully participating in the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis this weekend, he won’t be able to do quite everything — though it’s not of his volition.

While McCarthy plans to throw, one of the hopes was that he could show off his elite speed by running the 40-yard dash — somewhere he could excel compared to some of the other top-tier quarterbacks in the 2024 NFL draft. However, he told reporters in Indy that he unfortunately won’t be able to run or do the vertical jump on Saturday due to a tweaked hamstring.

Still, it’s a good thing for McCarthy that he’ll be able to throw. And it turns out he’s been getting some practice doing just that.

On Thursday, an eagle-eyed reporter who covers the San Francisco 49ers found McCarthy throwing to former Michigan running back Blake Corum in the convention center — somewhat of an unusual practice but one that certainly garnered some attention.
