The Mummy Returns (DK Metcalf)

Recommended Posts

For those that haven't seen the videos of DK at Minicamp, go check em out, they're all over Twitter. It's no wonder he ran a 30 second 3 cone, cuz that dude has zero fluidity to his movements. He looked really stiff to me, maybe I'm crazy cuz the media is loving it.  He is going to have to be Randy Moss brilliant on deep balls of he is gonna be successful in this league, or become the endzone threat to end all endzone threats. The WRs running the drills with him looked smooth in comparison,  and some of those guys were UDFA's I'm pretty sure. Anybody on here that's more savvy with how to embed videos, I'd really appreciate it on this post. Thanks.

This is why he fell in the draft.  People get too excited by size and 40 times.  But there is more to it than that.

He reminds me of Dez Bryant, to be honest. If you play him 1-on-1 with the focus on the run heavy offense like the Cowboys, and in this case, the Seahawks, he will have plenty of opportunities to win, IMO.

 

Because of his frame, his route running looks more jerky than it is, but from what I saw last year, Baldwin and Lockett got plenty of 1-on-1 opportunities to win. So I think he will still be productive. But once they get into the red zone, that is where he has to earn his keep.

He is way too slow on anything but straight line movement, and idk that he has the contested catch ability that he essentially has to have to be successful.

The frame can affect appearance but the 3 cone drill doesn't lie.  

 

There is a reason he fell to the very bottom of the 2nd.  Maybe he can improve on this but he's going to have to work on it.  It's not something that is natural to him.

It's a good thing for him that Seattle's offense is just: 1st down - Run, 2nd down - Run, 3rd down - Russ, scramble for your life and throw deep.

Ehh... He's 6'3", that drill isn't going to be something at which he'll excel. Same for the three cone.

 

But yes, I agree that he's stiff and has limited lateral agility. He'll never be a good route runner, I don't think. But if he can make plays down the field, and if he can use his body to wall off defenders on digs and comebacks, he'll be a dangerous weapon. I think that's a lot of "ifs," and I'm not as enthralled with the size, speed and build as others are. I'm more drawn to technically proficient receivers with documented production.

 

Metcalf would have been way down my board. If he was still there late in the fourth, that would have been an acceptable range to me. But he was never going to last that long.

Definitely reminds me of Dez in that regard.  Dez fizzled quick too.

I think your description followed by the video you requested sums it up nicely.

I wouldn't give up Parris Campbell for him.

(Contract/length aside, just talent) would you give up Funchess for him if their contracts were even?

Interesting question. I would have to go with Funch since he passed

the Brian Decker testing and was brought on board by Ballard and

his scouts.

    • 60s Packers 70s Steelers 80s 49ers 90s Cowboys 00s Colts 10s Patriots   With 2020 right around the corner, the NFL will have six decades of teams that dominated in their respected era, but who was the best decade team.
    • My spouse can order what she wants or needs regardless of my status in society. If he didnt fail a test then he was clean. Players get caught all the time. Why didnt Manning?    I get it. Everyone cheats right? You cheat. I cheat. We're all just trying to cheat each other arent we? I mean it would seem that you're a pretty skeptical person.    Heres the thing. No one is surprised when the Patriots are involved in a cheating investigation. Is that just everyone hating them because they are winners? That must be it. Its envy. You see the colts have been beat by other teams too. They have been knocked out by the Steelers in some meaningful playoff games. The same can be said about the Chargers. I hate both teams. But they beat us fair and square. I can respect that. I cant respect the Patriots. They're classless. They're cheaters. They're proven cheaters. Not speculated. They're freakin proven cheaters.   You know most conspiracy theories are never proven considering they're just theories. Too bad both Brady and Bill have been tried and sentenced. It doesn't matter what theories you have if it isnt proven. You dont destroy a phone that doesn't have evidence on it. Just like you do destroy tapes, that have very clear evidence on them.    Now try if you will, to consider the Patriots fumble history which you continue to ignore. Great job your apparent personal investigation into deflategate. But you missed the Patriots fumble hirstoy. It is leaps and bounds better than every other team in the league. Because oh that's right! They're winners!    If the football is of lower PSI, it is much easier to retain control as a runner. Read between the lines man. 
    • Cook? Should be a great matchup for him.
    • Going through progression s didn't  help Luck versus chiefs.  Brissett  will get better.
