D.K. Metcalf Scouting Report

STRENGTHS: D.K. Metcalf is the most physically gifted WR in the 2019 NFL Draft class…you don’t find many human beings that can move the way that Metcalf can, at his size…legit #1 WR type of potential and upside…runs good routes—explosive in and out of his breaks…can elevate like few others can—and catches the ball at the highest point…has rare after the catch ability—is a nightmare for defenses to tackle…a legit deep ball threat who can take the top off of a defense…

WEAKNESSES: The injury to his neck, and how he checks out in the medicals will be paramount to the draft stock of D.K. Metcalf…he has a startling lack of production for a player held in such high regard…his value is almost all projection…was not asked to run a diverse passing tree during his time at Ole Miss—will need development and nuance to his game…not the most natural catcher of the football—will need work there as well…

COMP: Mike Evans

OVERALL: D.K. Metcalf is set to be one of the more polarizing and fascinating prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft. He has all of the physical tools you could ask for in a NFL Draft prospect, but he comes with very little on his resume. Is he more Andre Johnson/Mike Evans or is he more Equanimeous St. Brown? That’s something that scouts and GMs will have to decipher. I like him a great deal, and think he is the top WR prospect in this class. I would expect to hear his name called in the mid-late 1st round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
