RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Big and athletic at 6-2, 217, McDonald quietly enjoyed a breakout season last year with triple-digit tackles. With no noteworthy safety additions in St. Louis following a 980-snap season, McDonald is locked into a three-down role again this year. Although he's more of an in-the-box safety than a playmaking threat, McDonald could stumble into some interceptions this year (one last year) behind one of the league's best front sevens that should have quarterbacks throwing under duress all season.
McDonald missed six games with a fractured leg in 2013 but still tallied 53 tackles, a sack and an interception. He's slated as the starter to begin 2014, but there are a couple rookies coming in that could push him.
Rookie TJ McDonald is expected to slide into the starting free safety role for the Rams.
