(Part-1) Both Blake Corum and J.J. McCarthy have declared for the 2024 NFL Draft.

Michigan's national-championship quarterback J.J. McCarthy is bypassing his senior season to pursue the NFL draft. McCarthy announced Sunday, a day after being persuaded to stay. "The decision was hard—I love my teammates, coaches, and Ann Arbor," he said on social media.

After a memorable 2023 season, Michigan running back Blake Corum declared for the draft. After a season-ending knee injury in 2022, Corum returned in 2023 to carry for 1,245 yards and 27 touchdowns for Michigan.

He was voted offensive MVP of the national final game after scoring two touchdowns. Corum set a school record with 58 touchdowns and 3,737 running yards at Michigan.

Kris Jenkins, a top defensive lineman prospect, declared for the draft Sunday. This season, he has 37 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and his first career interception for Michigan. With three top players heading for the pros, Jim Harbaugh may be next.

A source told  that Harbaugh will interview with the Los Angeles Chargers this week about their head coaching opening. Sunday's AP interviewee requested anonymity because they couldn't disclose staff movements. Besides the Chargers, Atlanta, Carolina, Las Vegas, Seattle, Tennessee, and Washington have openings and may want Harbaugh back.

Saturday saw the Wolverines parade across town to their basketball stadium. McCarthy stood and grinned as the sold-out audience chanted as he spoke. The maize-and-blue crowd chanted, "One more year!"

McCarthy reminded the crowd of his Nov. 15, 2020 social media post asking Michigan supporters to take three deep breathes and congratulate the coaches and players during the team's 2-4 pandemic-shortened season.

I know plenty of us had some big-time life decisions to make," McCarthy said on Crisler Center stage. But I want you to know that no matter what happens, Michigan will always be in my heart. I will be happy to be a Michigan man.
