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.But Is he a good blocking TE?
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.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.
