On most days, being among the lead NFL Draft experts for ESPN is a position with very high job security, but not on this day.
Longtime ESPN NFL Draft expert Todd McShay was let go by the network on Friday, according to New York Post sports media reporter Andrew Marchand.

The move is notable not just because of McShay’s beat – covering college and to some extent NFL football – but also because of McShay’s tenure at the network. McShay has spent nearly twenty years covering the NFL Draft for ESPN. McShay has also worked as a field analyst covering college football since 2016 and many thought he was the logical, eventual replacement for lead ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper.
