McShay will continue as leading voice on ESPN’s NFL Draft and college football coverage
NFL Draft and college football analyst Todd McShay has signed a multi-year agreement to remain with ESPN. McShay will continue to be a prominent year-round voice, providing analysis across ESPN television networks, ESPN Radio, ESPN.com and ESPN The Magazine.
One of the industry’s leading NFL Draft analysts, McShay will continue to make regular appearances on NFL Insiders, NFL Live, and SportsCenter in advance of the 2016 NFL Draft (April 28-30). During the NFL Draft, he will provide analysis for SportsCenter before and after Round 1, and he will join colleague Mel Kiper, Jr. on ESPN’s main set for Rounds 2-7.
As part of his new deal, McShay will continue working on ESPN and ABC college football telecasts in the fall. He will also contribute to ESPN’s on-site coverage of top football events throughout the year, including the College Football Playoff National Championship, Senior Bowl, NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, NFL Scouting Combine, NFL Pro Days and more.
“This was the right decision for a number of reasons,” McShay said. “ESPN has always been the driving force behind the NFL Draft and it’s the home of the College Football Playoff. Plus, working at ESPN is like being part of the ultimate team, and I’ve been fortunate to develop many strong friendships here. I’m excited about the draft and my future at ESPN.”
Added ESPN senior coordinating producer of NFL studio shows Seth Markman: “Todd has an incredible skillset and work ethic, and his analysis has been an invaluable asset to ESPN’s NFL and college football presentation. We look forward to him being a big part of our draft coverage for many more years to come.”
McShay has served as the director of college football scouting for ESPN’s Scouts, Inc. since he joined the company in 2006. He has been part of ESPN’s annual presentation of the NFL Draft since 2009.
Last year, McShay correctly identified 28 of the 32 first-round selections in his Final 2015 NFL Mock Draft.
