I wasn't sure if they'd spend a high pick on a TE coming into the draft, but this assures me that the 2TE set will be a staple in this offense. So now there's a behemoth OLine with the best blocking TE in the league and now big Vance. Just saw some clips of him. That he was lined up as a slot WR was amusing. He also seems to have a mean streak like Boone and ADavis.
Very excited about this kids athleticism but most of all his versatility. He has the ability to play out of the backfield as an H-back, play in the slot (used for a lot of bubble screens) and was even used for end-arounds at Rice. He has also shown a good ability to block in space.
Roman is a super creative OC and I can't wait to see what he has in store for Vance in this offense.

When he lines up, looking from the rear, he looks like another OT. Also, if you go to Rice you can't be a dummy. They graduate mostly everybody and all seem to be in the sciences. Bet on it that he is smart. He looks like a really big Delanie, won't be as deft, but will be a great blocker. He is fast so he can get downfield to bloc like delanie. Like they say, the knock is that his catches aren't clean...Clean? I personally don't care if a catch is clean or not. Just matters is he catches it.
mcdonald, like eric reid, had the higest wonderlic for his position group, as wellas the most bench presses in the lifting
