The legend of D.K. Metcalf continues to grow.
The former Ole Miss receiver went viral with his ridiculous body photo a few weeks ago, and now, everyone at the NFL Combine is taking notice, too.
Metcalf claims 1.9 percent body fat, which is crazy — some are even wondering if that’s physically possible and/or healthy. Nonetheless, Metcalf looks more like a bodybuilder than a future NFL pass catcher.
On Friday, Metcalf wowed again, this time putting up 27 reps on bench press. He finished tied with Arizona State’s N’Keal Harry for the most among the wide receivers. To put that into perspective, his college teammate A.J. Brown put up 19 reps on bench press, and Brown is also a big receiver.

Metcalf also met with the media Friday, and he was asked if any coaches were impressed with him physically.
“I met with the Seahawks last night, so Pete Carroll was surprised,” Metcalf said. “Coach Jon Gruden was surprised. Coach Gruden for the Redskins was surprised. Every team when I walk in they’re always like, ‘Wow. You are really that big.'”
Leading into the NFL Combine and exiting it, Metcalf will be a huge topic of conversation. Assuming he tests well on Saturday, Metcalf could jump on draft boards.
