J.J. McCarthy posted the third-highest adjusted completion percentage in the nation (80%) in 2023. McCarthy's throw air time below an expectation also ranked first in the class (-0.13). This is determined by throw distance and the quarterback's footwork when throwing. Per Sports Info Solutions a lower number is better, because in that case throws of the same distance are taking less time to get to the target.
Given the analytics background of Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, I am not surprised that Minnesota has been connected to quarterbacks Drake Maye and J.J. McCarthy, both of whom are 21 years old. Age-adjusted production stands out in an analytical analysis.

J.J. McCarthy 'most popular answer' among execs at No. 2

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the "most popular answer" at No. 2 he's heard from NFL executives in the know with Washington Commanders GM Adam Peters is Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy.

Fantasy Impact

McCarthy has been a late-process riser, elevating his stock from a late-Day 1/early-Day 2 QB to a top-10 hopeful. While many anticipate he could be a trade-up target for a team like the Minnesota Vikings, the reigning CFP National Championship QB seems to be a potential favorite to go No. 2, according to league circles. The Commanders traded away QB Sam Howell and signed Marcus Mariota.
