We are lacking in experience at TE, but I wouldn't call it a position of worry. Vernon Davis was coming on very strong during the playoffs and hopefully he can Colin Kaepernick can continue. Lots of questions marks there, but previous history with our coaching staff suggests that unknown doesn't equal bad when it comes to our team. Whoever wins the battle for the number two and three tight end positions will be ready to go come September.
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.
