Former Ole Miss WR D.K. Metcalf wowed NFL coaches such as Jon Gruden and Pete Carroll when he showed that he is indeed as big as he looks in his photos.
Metcalf stole the show at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis by putting up 27 bench press reps, logging a 40-yard dash time of 4.33 seconds (unofficial) and recording a vertical jump of 40.5 inches. Ole Miss fans have known Metcalf is a special wide receiver, now the whole world knows he’s a physical freak of nature.
ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. says Metcalf is a potential top-10 pick. In the article snippet below, Kiper puts Metcalf in some elite company, comparing his athleticism to Alabama great and current Atlanta Falcons wideout Julio Jones.
