Who is DK Metcalf?
DK Metcalf starred at the 2019 NFL Combine. Here are the key stats from his workout:
- 27 reps in the Bench Press
- 33 in the 40-yard dash
- Vertical jump of 40.5 inches
- 134-inch broad jump
Metcalf played his college football at Ole Miss from 2016-2018, including a red shirt year in 2016. He caught 26 receptions for 569 yards and 5 touchdowns before declaring for the NFL draft.
He was drafted in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft by the Seattle Seahawks. Metcalf was picked by the team to be a consistent deep threat for their beast of a quarterback Russell Wilson.
NFL Rookie Year
As someone who was always criticized for only being able to run vertical routes, Metcalf shined in his rookie season. He caught 58 passes for 900 yards and 7 touchdowns. But his skills were shown on the big stage when he had a lights-out game in his first career playoff game.
On January 5, 2020, Metcalf put up 160 yards and a touchdown catch on 7 receptions against the Philadelphia Eagles. Wow, talk about stepping up to the plate when it matters most. Largely due to DK, the Seahawks would win that game 17-9 but end up losing to the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round. He makes them a championship contender going into next season.
