Peyton Manning: Broncos’ Strong Interest in J.J. McCarthy in 2024 NFL Draft

Broncos Eyeing Upsetting The Draft Board With Trade for Potential QB Superstar

In recent news, the Denver Broncos have made a trade for former New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson, but their plans for the quarterback position in the 2024 NFL Draft remain unchanged. With the 12th overall pick, the Broncos could target Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. or Oregon’s Bo Nix. However, there is speculation that they may trade up to get their preferred player.

One player that has caught the eye of many mock drafts is Michigan’s J.J. McCarthy. Many project him to be taken fifth overall by a team like the Minnesota Vikings, who may trade up to secure a quarterback. If the Broncos want McCarthy, it may require general manager George Paton to make a move up the draft board.

During an interview on 104.3 The Fan’s Stokley and Josh, Peyton Manning mentioned that the Broncos are interested in McCarthy. Manning had a positive conversation with McCarthy and believes Denver is a place he would like to go, though ultimately it is out of his control. Despite not hitting specific statistical benchmarks, McCarthy is viewed by NFL teams as having great potential at the professional level. The Broncos are among the teams that see this potential in the 21-year-old quarterback.
