The NFL Combine is an important weekend for top draft prospects, as they can improve or lower their stock with only a couple of months to go before April’s NFL Draft.
This year, one of the biggest risers is Ole Miss WR D.K. Metcalf, who looks like a tank and yet still managed to run a 4.33-second 40-yard dash — tied for the third-fastest time among all receivers.
As you can see below, Metcalf got emotional while talking to his family on the phone after his big performance:

Considering this is basically a job interview, Metcalf just made himself millions of dollars. He’s a likely first-round pick, and may even sneak into the top-10 with this showing at the Combine.
Where he ends up remains to be seen, but he’s been a big winner in the pre-draft process.
