2020 NFL Draft: Pick 224
High school: Sonora
The skinny: McDonald played for a pass first Hawaii team and led the Rainbows to a 10-5 record and Hawaii Bowl win over BYU in 2019. The knock on McDonald is that he has a weak arm.
What they’re saying: “Next up from the pass-happy Hawaii offense with good size and impressive touchdown production over the last two seasons as a starter. While he can read defenses and throw with touch, he doesn’t have the timing or ball placement to make up for his weak arm. He needs to work to a condensed field as a pro, but even then, jumpy cornerbacks could feast since he struggles to work with consistent anticipation to limit contested throws. He’s a decent athlete, but it’s not enough to offset his throwing deficiencies.” – Lance Zierlein NFL Analyst
