Where is Todd McShay? ESPN draft analyst reveals he’s recovering from coronavirus, won’t be on TV

ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay said Wednesday that won’t be working the NFL Draft this year because he’s at home recovering from the novel coronavirus.  

McShay is the director of college football scouting for ESPN’s Scouts Inc. He started working for ESPN in 2006 to cover the NFL Draft. He made his first appearance on ESPN’s draft telecast in 2009 and has been a fixture on the main event coverage since 2011, according to ESPN.

“I’m so sorry to tell you I won’t be working the NFL Draft this year, McShay wrote on Twitter. “I’m home recovering from coronavirus. For now, I just want to say I miss you all – my teammates at ESPN who have been incredibly supportive, my friends in the league, and the fans who have made the Draft what is is today.”

McShay didn’t specify a timetable for when he got the virus, but said he will “be back” to his job “thanks to the tireless work of healthcare workers and first responders. You are truly our nation’s heroes.”

The 2020 NFL Draft will begin Thursday at 8 p.m. ET and will broadcast live on ABC, ESPN and NFL Network. 

“In the meantime, I’ll be watching and I hope you will be too,,” McShay wrote. “I also hope (host Trey) Wingo and crew will help me out and do their part to keep (Mel) Kiper (Jr.) in line!”
