Player Analysis

The Good

  • Can run, but isn’t elusive
  • When given time, will go through progressions
  • Poised and patient in pocket
  • Decent accuracy on short and intermediate passes

The Bad

  • Very long arm motion slows his release time
  • Weak arm
  • Overly aggressive throwing into double coverage
  • Overthrows open receivers at times

Overall Assessment

PRE-DRAFT: McDonald has good size and the ability to run a bit.  He is an aggressive YOLO quarterback that will throw into tight coverage. His “Kareem Abdul-Jabbar hook shot” release and lack of arm-strength limit his upside.  McDonald is someone I am not looking to add at this time. He is fantasy irrelevant unless someone unexpectedly drafts him.

POST-DRAFT: McDonald was drafted by the Titans in the seventh round.  McDonald will be battling with Logan Woodside for the backup role, so it is possible he ends up winning that competition.  If that is the case, he will be backing up a quarterback that has had his fair share of injuries and runs with the ball quite a bit.  If you are looking to add a late round rookie quarterback that may have the chance to hit like Garner Minshew in 2019, McDonald is the best bet.  He is an add in deeper superflex leagues and a pass in 1QB.
