Ole Miss wide-receiver DK Metcalf has caught serious attention from NFL teams after his outstanding combine performance.
The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder ran a 4.33 second 40-yard dash. He also recorded a 40.5” vertical jump and a 134’’ broad jump. Metcalf only played one full college season at Ole Miss as a result to two injuries but still dominated in his years.
He was a 4-star player coming out of high school and only played one game with two receptions and two touchdowns, his freshman season at Ole Miss. It was almost automatic that he would go to Ole Miss, because that is where his father played football. He also attended Oxford High School.
His freshman season did not go as planned but he was ready to bounce back the next year. The next year he recorded 646 receiving yards with seven touchdowns, including a game winner with a few seconds remaining against Kentucky.
This past season was probably his most dominate but ended after only six games, as he was injured in the Arkansas game. This past season Metcalf recorded 569 receiving yards with give touchdowns in only six games.
Metcalf's hype started a few weeks ago when a post workout picture was posted in which Metcalf had the build of a linebacker. His Ole Miss teammate said “This about to be bigger than Odell and Jarvis Landry when they entered the draft." Many people think Metcalf can be a top receiver next season because of all this hype. Metcalf is a projected first round pick, along with two other rebels, AJ Brown and Gregory Little.
Could DK Metcalf potentially be a rookie of the year winner?
