Despite the perception safety T.J. McDonald did not have a great senior season, an AFC coach told me today he was prepared to draft McDonald if the Rams didn’t take him in the third round.
This would back up Rams coach Jeff Fisher’s draft comments that he was worried McDonald would go before the 71st pick.
“I liked the way he played,” the AFC coach said. “I know some people might have been surprised but I wanted to take him. The Rams just took him first.”
