Report: Giants host top QB prospect J.J. McCarthy for top-30 visit

It’s no secret that the New York Giants have a lot of work do to this offseason. That work began last week and continues as the 2024 NFL draft approaches.

In preparation for the draft, the Giants hosted top QB prospect J.J. McCarthy for a top-30 visit this week.

The quarterback position has been one of controversy for some time in New York. Daniel Jones is still pledged to be the guy, but the Giants still need options to back him up. Rumors have swirled that they plan to take a quarterback with the sixth pick, while others say the focus is elsewhere.

With the Giants using one of their top-30 visits to host McCarthy, the team will be able to gauge better if he will fit in the locker room. Player acquisition is about more than the ability to play a position, and these visits are designed to give organizations the insight they need.

During his tenure at Michigan, McCarthy recorded 6,226 passing yards, completing 67.6% of his passes and throwing 49 touchdowns with just 11 interceptions. He also rushed 161 times for 632 yards, an average of 3.9 yards per carry, and 10 touchdowns.

Michigan’s pro day is March 22, at which time the Giants will be able to see McCarthy perform in a controlled environment. His ability to throw accurate passes and still use his feet when needed would be huge for the Giants.

It wouldn’t surprise anyone if they took McCarthy at six. If he’s still available.
