Todd McShay is regarded by many around the NFL as a top draft analyst.
He has been in the industry for many years and is typically featured on ESPN in the months leading up to the draft.
With the draft just around the corner, McShay has recently revealed his latest mock, which starts with three straight quarterbacks.

McShay believes that the first three picks will be C.J. Stroud, Bryce Young, and Anthony Richardson.
The Carolina Panthers traded several assets with the Chicago Bears to move up to the first overall slot.
There is growing suspicion that the Panthers will draft Stroud, and McShay’s mock seems to confirm that as well.
Stroud was a two-year starter at Ohio State and will look to make himself the face of an NFL franchise.
The Houston Texans have the second overall pick and are projected to draft Bryce Young.
Young was the Heisman Trophy winner in 2021 and has been a highly touted quarterback for the last several years.
The Texans have struggled at the quarterback position since Deshaun Watson left, and are looking to the draft to fill that void within the organization.
In McShay’s mock, he has the Indianapolis Colts selecting third overall, drafting Richardson.
The Colts currently hold the fourth overall pick, one slot below the Arizona Cardinals, meaning that McShay is projecting them to swap picks with the Cardinals.
Richardson impressed many during his final season at Florida, and his athletic measurables at the combine helped him leap up many draft boards.
