South Carolina State has produced its share of quality NFL talent over the years, and Tyler McDonald could be next among that group. The 6’3, 190 pound receiver had a solid four year career at SCSU, and finished it off with a bang.
McDonald accounted for 935 receiving yards on 50 catches, averaging a sensational 18.7 yards per game. His efforts helped South Carolina State challenge for the MEAC title and earn an at-large bid to the FCS playoffs.
His best game of the year came against his team’s stiffest competition, the ACC’s Clemson Tigers. McDonald caught four passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns in the loss to the Tigers. That type of production against high-level talent can only help McDonald’s cause.
His production and height and ability to stretch the field will definitely catch scout’s eyes. It’s unlikely he gets drafted, but expect to him to sign as a UDFA shortly after the draft is over.
