Blaine Gabbert and TEs coach Jeff Nixon both talked up Vance McDonald following Tuesday's minicamp practice.
"He’s a guy that we have to utilize," Gabbert said. "He’s a mismatch nightmare on linebackers." Nixon spoke even more glowingly of the fourth-year tight end: "The sky is the limit. He’s very talented. He has the size and the speed. I’m expecting a big year out of Vance. We’re looking for him to take off right from where he left off last year, being a big-play tight-end target for us in the pass game." McDonald started the final eight games of 2015, catching 24-of-37 targets for 294 yards and all three of his scores. With Vernon Davis now gone, McDonald figures to be locked in as the starter and was a favorite of Gabbert's the final month-plus. Jun 7 - 9:39 PM
