DK Metcalf Draft Profile | DK Metcalf Scouting Report
Actual Strengths: Can’t be pressed, releases clean off the snap. Rare, freakish size/speed combination. Should dominate the combine. Impressive wingspan and catch radius, combined with tracking the ball well, makes up for overthrows. Accelerates well off the line and after the catch. A beast to bring down after the catch. Plays jump balls well and boxes defenders out should make for a strong red-zone threat. Competent blocker.
Weaknesses: Was tasked with a limited route tree and ran predominantly as an outside receiver, versatility may be limited. I don’t consider the following as “weaknesses” but concerning – Final season ended on a neck injury that required surgery.
Was cleared for combined events. Also suffered a broken foot in his freshman season, was redshirted after. Any news of medical testing at Indianapolis will be something to keep an eye on.
Summary: Overall, Metcalf is a rare prospect with elite size and speed. As long as health doesn’t hold him back, the potential to be a dominant outside WR1 in need of some technical refinement.
He provides a great fit as a true, prototype WR1 for the Arizona Cardinals, and (depending on range) should be a prime trade back candidate. Assuming there are no red flags that precipitate a tumble to the 33rd overall selection, he is as much of a “no-brainer” pick as there stands to be.
