Gil Brandt had this to say about McDonald in an article on impact players drafted in the second day.
He listed 9 players:
Vance McDonald, TE, RiceSan Francisco 49ers, Round 2, No. 55 overall
McDonald is a great steal. He should step right in and contribute from Week 1 as the Niners' second tight end, out-producing the departed Delanie Walker
in that capacity. He has the speed and coordination to play the position and possesses very good hands, though he must learn to block better.
Looking forward to seeing him out-produce Delanie this season.
