With Garrett Celek (ankle) on injured reserve, rookie fourth-rounder Blake Bell is expected to get the start. Though impressive from an athletic perspective, Bell primarily played quarterback until his final season at the University of Oklahoma. McDonald will likely take back the starting job if he's healthy before the end of the season.

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

McDonald is currently listed as the backup to Vernon Davis on the 49ers' 2014 depth charts. While he only had eight catches in 2013, his 14.9 YPC shows that he has big-play ability. His stock would skyrocket should Davis go down with an injury.

2013

McDonald has received positive reports so far at rookie camp as a pass catcher and could see some targets in two-tight end sets if he wins the backup TE job.
