BIO: Three-year starter used at both guard positions and sparingly at tackle.
POSITIVES: Big, quick blocker who.s shown improvement on the field. Strong at the point and easily turns defenders off the line. Jolts opponents with good hand punch, keeps his feet moving and stays square. Makes effective use of body positioning and seals defenders from the action. Flashes power getting movement from run blocks.
NEGATIVES: Not light on his feet and lacks balance. Cannot slide in space and rumbles out to the second level. Looks overweight and has difficulty adjusting.
ANALYSIS: Possessing size and natural strength, McDonald could develop into a backup at the next level if he properly conditions himself and learns to finish blocks.
