The Seattle Seahawks picked D.K. Metcalf 64th overall in the 2019 NFL Draft. Here’s what Stephen White had to say about Metcalf ahead of the draft:
One thing I think we can all agree on is that D.K. Metcalf is a physical specimen!
This kid stands at 6’3, weighs almost 230 pounds, and just blazed a 4.33 40 at the NFL Combine. In a show of ridiculous explosion for a man his size, Metcalf went over 40 inches in his vertical leap. Oh, and not only did he show he was athletic, Metcalf also showed he packs a punch too, after lifting 225 pounds 27 times.
How often have you seen a wideout go for almost 30 reps on the bench press?
That was, by any measure, an amazing performance by Metcalf in Indianapolis.
I didn’t actually watch his Ole Miss film till after he was done working out at the combine, so I was looking forward to seeing if those numbers translated to his on-field play last season.
