lol - seems like one. I'd rather get him with the first 3rd pick than Ertz with the 34th pick. I might even rather have McDonald over Ertz regardless of draft position because he's much stronger, a much better blocker, and as good an athlete (at least based on the combine results, but maybe only equal based off tape). He needs work on his hands, but his hands are huge and he has much longer arms than Ertz which makes his 31 reps on the bench even more impressive. Ertz just does not have the measurables to develop into a good blocker and is not as explosive as Eifert who might also be overrated. McDonald and Kelce are rawer, but probably better values unless Eifert falls to 31.
