But Is he a good blocking TE?
However, he isn’t just physically capable as a blocker. McBride is technically astute as well. He plays the role with low pad level, incredible grip strength, and impressive leg drive. The Colorado State TE also showcases active hands and feet, enabling him to mirror his opponent. He’s routinely able to lock out his opponent, and there were many reps in the games studied where he drove his man to the ground.

I like the player and I get going for the best talent on the board because you draft for the future but we need a pass rusher... guess the Cards have a trade in place to get that later, right? lol

REVIEW​

Where he wins: Downfield
McBride wins where so few tight ends do — down the football field. He can get past the linebacker-level swiftly and then presents a massive target over the middle. He can do it all while also being a respectable blocker.
What's his role: All-Around TE
McBride is a starting in-line tight end from Day 1. The leap in competition obviously presents a learning curve, but he's talented and proven enough to not stress about it.
What can he Improve: Physical Routes
McBride could stand to get even more physical as a route-runner. He's too content with someone hanging on him at times, knowing he's likely to win at the catch point, which won't always be the case in the league.

He looks solid. I am happy to see us go BPA. I wish we would do that with every pick tbh. Once upon a time we drafted Larry with the first pick because he was “the best player in the draft” at a position we were relatively set at, having invested a 1 & 2 just the yr prior. I think it worked out pretty damn well for us.

I’m not sure how much I like the pick but I love the player. This has BPA all over it. Now we are going to need to shore up that RB room so we can run behind this 2TE sets.

I agree.

Making a list of needs and trying to pick by checking off the list in order of most pressing to least is not a good way to draft.
