Ouch! Has he exceeded his penalty yardage yet?5 of the Cards last 6 second round picks (Rondale, Murphy, Kirk, Budda and Golden) were on the field a lot as rookies. Isabella was an outlier as far as production from second rounders goes, and McBride would be lucky to catch up to Isabella's rookie yardage total at this rate. McBride wasn't even active for the first couple games of the season, which can't even be said about Isabella.
There is still plenty of time for McBride to turn it around, obviously, but it's tough to spin 8 catches for 45 yards in the first 10 games of the season as anything other than disappointing for a second round pick who hasn't been out with injuries. Those aren't even Rob Housler level numbers.
