Eastern Washington S Tevin McDonald "reportedly matured following his transfer to EWU, making the interviews at the combine critical for his draft stock," observed CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
"McDonald, the son of former San Francisco 49ers standout Tim McDonald and younger brother of St. Louis Rams safety T.J. McDonald, is an intriguing talent with the length, fluidity and ball skills to warrant third-day consideration, especially in a relatively weak year for safeties," Rang wrote. McDonald was dismissed from UCLA after multiple team rule violations. He also reportedly failed at least three drug tests while with the Bruins. At 5-foot-11, 200 pounds, McDonald is on the smallish side for an NFL safety. Mon, Feb 16, 2015 10:20:00 PM

Eastern Washington redshirt senior S Tevin McDonald accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

Tevin is the brother of T.J., a St. Louis Ram. The younger McDonald began his career at UCLA, but was dismissed from the program by head coach Jim Mora Jr. in March, 2013 due to a failed drug test. He subsequently transferred to Eastern Washington. At 5-foot-11, 200 pounds, he's on the smallish side for an NFL safety. He'll probably enter the NFL as a UDFA, though could catch the eye of a scout during post-season evaluations and hear his name called late on Day 3.

Former UCLA S Tevin McDonald has transferred to Eastern Washington.

"After consultation with many people and having a long discussion with Tevin, we’ve determined that he deserves the opportunity to continue his collegiate career," EWU head coach Beau Baldwin said. "We have high expectations of him off the field, in the classroom and on the field." McDonald's suspension was reportedly due to a failed drug test.

UCLA redshirt sophomore S Tevin McDonald has been dismissed from the program by head coach Jim Mora Jr.

The only reason given was that McDonald "violated team policy." We believe this decision can be traced back to the Bruins' bowl game, since McDonald was reportedly suspended after testing positive for marijuana. Tevin, the brother of draft-eligible safety T.J., was one of the school's top defensive players and leaders.

UCLA redshirt sophomore S Tevin McDonald will not travel for the team's bowl game due to a violation of unspecified team rules.

The LA Times reports that McDonald tested positive for marijuana. This is certainly a nice boost for the Baylor offense, since McDonald is an active tackler in the back half while showing the range to cover downfield.
