2011 NFL Mock Draft: Grading Todd McShay's Latest Mock Draft

We have come to know Todd McShay as the voice opposite Mel Kiper Jr. on almost every NFL draft issue discussed on ESPN.

Who does ESPN tell us McShay is? None other than "the director of college scouting for Scouts Inc. He has been evaluating prospects for the NFL draft since 1998."

We have heard Kiper's story before (the draft-centered "nerd" that provided draft publications before anyone else and has been featured on ESPN since in 1984), but how much do we know about McShay?

The "man with the tan" was a college quarterback at Richmond and then became a member of "The War Room", which ESPN bought in 2006 and coined "Scouts Inc."; at the time "TWR" was run by former NFL scout Gary Horton.

We now see his face on a year-round basis and he often challenges and critiques Kiper like two friends engaged in a bar stool argument.

While Kiper sits at the desk during draft day, McShay does his things from the ESPN studios in Bristol, Connecticut.

They both have a major voice in NFL draft coverage and they typically drive home opinions that a majority of the fan base loves to argue with because their opinions are made so public.

Both Kiper and McShay released new three-round mock drafts today and we are going to grade out Todd's latest picks as the day goes on.

Has he finally given in and put Cam Newton at No. 1 overall?

And how far is Da'Quan Bowers going to fall down after his workout woes?

Keep it here and you'll find out if Todd McShay made the best decisions.
