– DK Metcalf is a physical freak and is built like he’s made out of granite.
– Makes teams double cover with a safety net due to his size and speed combination
– He has the quick twitch fiber in his hips which makes him scary to defenders, besides his massive frame as he can get in and out of his breaks easily
– Has #1 wide receiver potential early in his career with the proper coaching and development
– DK Metcalf has had two season ending injuries in his college career, one with his foot and the other with his neck so an injury risk is there.
– Having such little body fat (1.6 percent) would also raise some additional red flags for durability concerns
– Has issues with dropped passes over the last two seasons as well
– Tends to slow down while in stride to locate the pass in flight
– Has limited knowledge of the route tree
– Since arriving in Oxford, he has been the second best wide receiver on his team to A.J. Brown, who is highly touted as well for the NFL.
– DK Metcalf is at this point still a gem in the rough, if he can develop more than the long ball game, teams will have serious reservations in how to defend him.
– He will likely begin his career as a long ball threat while he begins to learn the rest of the receiver routes at the next level.
– This can’t be stated more obvious, if his hands don’t let him down; he is a deadly weapon for any team’s offense.
