The Las Vegas Raiders had a lot of optimism going into the 2023 campaign.

They were eager to see what their roster was capable of, particularly in light of the significant quarterback position shift.

But once Jimmy Garoppolo suffered an injury, this team’s situation rapidly deteriorated.

Early in the season, they let go of Josh McDaniel and elevated Antonio Pierce to fill the void.

Although Pierce gained the respect of the locker room fast, it is unclear if he will be their primary option.

According to reports, Jim Harbaugh is interested in the position, but there seems to be a catch.

According to NFL reporter Tony Pauline, Harbaugh would like to work with J.J. McCarthy, his quarterback from Michigan, again if he joins the Raiders.

McCarthy’s draft status increased over the season, and many people now hold him in even greater regard having witnessing him win a national championship.

Wide receivers and quarterbacks in this class are reportedly very talented and could all have a significant impact on their future teams.

Should Harbaugh accept the position in Las Vegas, will they even get a chance to select McCarthy in the draft?

They are presently selected in the 2024 NFL Draft with the 13th overall pick.

Though the prevailing opinion might suggest that McCarthy will remain in place, every year the draft is a fresh experience.

A number of teams, particularly those in need of a quarterback, may trade up or into the first round.

QBs and elite skill position players are in high demand these days, so teams may need to make moves in the upcoming draft to acquire the guys they want.
