Ray McDonald
SI Grade
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
6-3.5, 276
40 Time:

BIOGRAPHY: Moved into the starting lineup as a freshman and earned All-Conference honors last season. Senior totals were 36/4.5/3. Started three games as a junior before missing the rest of the season after knee surgery. Career-best numbers of 54/8/4 came as a freshman.

POSITIVES: Disruptive lineman effective at both the end and tackle positions. Explodes off the snap with a great first step, fires through the gaps and plays with good pad level. Immediately alters his angle of attack and redirects to the action.

NEGATIVES: Can be handled at the point by a single blocker. Has had a lot of problems staying healthy in college, and has undergone two knee surgeries.

ANALYSIS: A determined prospect who consistently gives top effort, McDonald is an intense defender who can be used at a variety of positions. Offers potential as a two-gap end and may even be given consideration as a three-technique tackle.

PROJECTION: Early Third Round
