  • Good height and bulk — McBride just physically dominates defenders at the catch point and is a physical runner after the catch (the Tribe used him frequently on end-arounds throughout his career)
  • Will draw Pierre Garcon comparisons
  • Great hands and body control and makes circus catches look routine
  • Elite ability to high-point the ball and offers his QB a large catch radius
  • Fearless over the middle and can absorb contact and maintain possession
  • Suffers from concentration drops at times, but is a consistent hands catcher that extends his arms to make catches
  • Lack of separation is the biggest concern as McBride transitions to playing against a better level of competition; however, his ability to catch contested passes mitigates this concern some
  • Has improved as a route runner over the years, but there is still room for improvement – McBride rounds off routes, lacks elite acceleration out of cuts and doesn’t always sell his routes
  • Speed doesn’t always show up on film, rarely pulls away from the defense
  • Lacks quick-twitch moves in the open field to elude defenders
  • Has special teams experience in college as both a kick returner (23.1 yard career average) and punt returner (11.1 yard career average)
  • Will draw Pierre Garcon comparisons
  • COMBINE UPDATE: McBride performed well in Combine drills turning in particularly good scores in the Forty (4.41), 10-Yard Split (1.51), Vertical (38”) and Shuttle (4.08). McBride also performed admirably in the on-field portion.
  • NFL DRAFT SELECTION: 7th Round (7.28 – Tennessee Titans)
  • DYNASTY ROOKIE PROJECTION: 5th Round
  • 2015 OUTLOOK: McBride surprisingly fell to the final round of the NFL draft. He may have went to a small school, but McBride has the hands and athleticism to surprise if given the chance. If Justin Hunter continues to underwhelm, Hakeem Nicks doesn’t improve his play and Dorial Green-Beckham doesn’t keep his head screwed on straight, McBride’s could have a chance to get on the field and he is someone to keep in mind as the 2015 season unfolds as he could surprise but McBride likely won’t be drafted in 2015 redraft leagues coming out of summer drafts and will likely require  a fair bit of patience in dynasty.
