With the 55th pick in the draft, the San Francisco 49ers select…

Vance McDonald, TE, Rice Owls (6-4, 267 pounds)

The 49ers remain aggressive, as San Francisco trades up with the Packers to secure their guy in Vance McDonald. A smooth athlete for such a big man, McDonald is capable of getting consistent separation with his burst out of his breaks. While showing inconsistent hands at Rice, he had an outstanding week of Senior Bowl practices, demonstrating that he is clearly capable of competing with top level talent.
