Vance McDonald

Vance McDonald played mostly in the slot at Rice. He could impact an NFL team early in his career if he’s used as a slot receiver, so OTA’s may give us some insight there. He has good hands; explosiveness; runs good routes; is comfortable in space; can run the seam or the underneath routes; reads his blocks well; and plays through the whistle. He is another tight end who can be used all over the field to create mismatches.

He has a small catch radius, doesn’t adjust well to an off target throw; will drop a few balls; and needs to develop better blocking technique.

He looks like an early to mid round second round pick in the NFL Draft, though if he drops it’s because of his dropped passes and questions about his strength in blocking. In dynasty draft he should go in the second to fourth round depending on teams needs and landing spot.
