Todd McShay of ESPN is considered one of the elite NFL analysts in the game of football. Not only for his own knowledge, but more importantly for his NFL connections that consistently give him a great look inside what NFL teams are thinking. That is why when he recently sent this Tweet out about one Spartan being his, “Best I;ve seen,” prospect for the 2017 draft, people took notice.

Congrats to Malik McDowell. A big 2016 could propel him close to the #1 overall pick and Mark Dantonio’s fourth straight first round selection in the NFL draft.
