RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

McDonald has started at defensive end for all but one of the 49ers games over the last three seasons and is expected to fill a similar role this year again. With so much attention being paid to the likes of Aldon and Justin Smith and NoVarro Bowman, McDonald has been able to find his way in for a handful of sacks but is not considered much of a threat in IDP leagues.

2011

McDonald is likely to start at left defensive tackle.

2010

McDonald will likely be limited to third down and nickel pass rush situations, although he did record three sacks in that role during the 2009 season.

2009

McDonald's status for 2009 remains uncertain (knee) and he may end up being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

2008

McDonald is expected to challenge for a starting position on the 49ers' defensive line.

2007

McDonald's draft stock plummeted because of a problem with his knees. He had two knee surgeries in 2005 but started all 14 games last season. McDonald's knees still may need surgery but the 49ers felt he was too good a value to pass up in the third round and he is expected to see time at defensive end and nose tackle.
