Vance "Big Mac" McDonald Thread

Who?
Barkley to HOU
Welcome to the 49ers Vance McDonald
I'm very disapointed. I'm not a fan of his at all.
He looks like he could fill Walker's role easily. Let's face it we aren't in rebuild mode anymore we have to fill holes because we are in superbowl trophy RIGHT f**kING NOW mode.
He also played LS, good bye Brian Jennings.
Son of Tim McDonald. Former 49er. Watch your tongue
wtf keenan allen is available

Interesting pick. He had a day two grade. He's a freaking monster. He knows how to block in space. Hard worker. It's not like we were looking for a #1 TE. He might have to compete for the job but he could compete to fill the roles Walker had. The knock is he bobbles some balls and he doesn't have experience blocking "in line". But that's Vernon's job and he would be likely doing lots of motion and backfield stuff like Delanie did. Plus it's not like Delanie had the best hands on the team or that we'll be targeting this guy outside of clear mismatches.

lol he will be targeted in the redzone... 6-4 o yeah me like that. I agree he won't be used as a in line blocker, he will be in motion and do the backfield like walker did. And walker sucked at catching so we couldn't get worse in that area.
lol no love in this thread

McDonald, the son of a former Texas Longhorns linebacker, did not receive the attention of large collegiate programs out of high school. One reason could be his hometown of Winnie, Texas, which has a population of less than 3,500 people. Even though he comes from a small town, McDonald has big-time talent and displayed plenty of that during Senior Bowl week.

Despite his size and NFL projection, McDonald was mostly used as a slot receiver throughout his career, creating a size and physical mismatch in both the passing and running games. In his first season, McDonald caught 12 passes but missed two games due to an injury. He quickly turned into Rice's top receiving option in 2010, amassing 396 yards and eight touchdowns on 28 receptions. In that same year, McDonald was named the Owls' top receiver after earning the George R. Brown Award. In 2011, McDonald continued his consistent production, catching 43 passes for 452 yards and five touchdowns. His numbers dipped a bit as a senior, collecting 36 catches for 458 yards and two touchdowns. McDonald also finished the season as the team's long snapper.
