The photos of lifting weights. The crazy-low body fat. The 4.33 40-yard dash. This 21-year-old has the drive to overcome a neck injury to make it at the next level.

Ole Miss WR D.K. Metcalf lit up the combine testing in Indianapolis. At 6-foot-3, 228 pounds, Metcalf ran a 4.33 40 yard dash, posted a 40.5 inch vertical jump and also put up 27 reps on the bench press test. Metcalf has rare size/speed at the position and has flashed his upside on film. Think deep ball speed here with big play ability outside of the numbers.
