TE Vance McDonald, Rice

49ers, 2nd round. Rice: Good size. Above-average hand size.

Positives: Above-average hands and can extend. Finds spots in zone. Strangely dangerous after the catch. Solid run blocker. Runs smooth routes and uses physicality to get open.

Negatives: Was a WR in college who will transition to TE in the pros. Suspect concentration and tends to take eyes off of ball to head upfield. Injured toe in October and missed several games.

Projection: Will form a very nice 1-2 punch at TE on the 49ers with Vernon Davis. As long as Davis is healthy, though, McDonald will always be their second choice. Draft as a TE4 with TE2 potential.
