I like Vance McDonald a lot - not sure if we needed to trade up from 61, but I like him more than Kelce. He's not as good a receiver yet, but he's got the longest arms of any TE in the draft other than Toilolo (34 3/8), big hands, he's huge (6'4, 267 with 31 reps at the combine with long arms) and a solid blocker. I like McDonald at 55 way more than Ertz at 34 and I'm not surprised he went ahead of Kelce.

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.

McDonald is a better athlete and has a larger catch radius than Zach Ertz because of his much longer arms. He's 6'4 but he has long arms for his height compared to the other TE's in the draft. Toilolo is the only guy who is a much bigger target at TE (maybe Eifert - McDonald's arms are more than an inch longer, but Eifert is damn good at high-pointing balls).
