Rookie WR DK Metcalf showed diversity at Seahawks camp

Metcalf is already showing a veteran savvy with his ability to mix up his releases. For a guy listed at 6-foot-4 and 229 pounds, it’s been amazing to see him be so shifty at the snap.

“He has the quick feet of a smaller guy,” head coach Pete Carroll said, “but has this marvelous strength and ability to use his hands that guys die for because he’s so long. That combination makes him a really adept releaser.

He hasn’t been just a downfield threat, either. He caught a bullet from Wilson in the red zone on a slant pattern that would have gone for a touchdown and caught a similar ball from Paxton Lynch during the last team period of the day.

Fantasy Impact: 

Rookie WRs can make some drafters weary, but it seems that DK Metcalf is adjusting nicely to the NFL so far. He's shown speed and swift movement for a player of his size and has impressed the Seahawks staff to this point. Metkalf still has a lot to learn but should find himself in a battle with David Moore for the WR2 spot behind Tyler Lockett. He's currently being drafted as WR48, coming off boards in the ninth round.
