RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
McDonald is likely to start at left defensive tackle.
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.
McDonald's status for 2009 remains uncertain (knee) and he may end up being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
McDonald is expected to challenge for a starting position on the 49ers' defensive line.
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.
