DK Metcalf is a star in the making
Time and time again, DK Metcalf has proved he is going to be something special in this league. Whether it be his entire rookie season, the record-setting performance in the Wild Card Round, or the big play ability this year, he has proven he has arrived. Unfortunately for other teams, he is only going to get better and better. His QB Russell Wilson, deserves a lot of credit as well. Ever since the Seahawks traded up to draft Metcalf, he and Wilson have developed tremendous chemistry with one another.
They train together in the offseason, Wilson helps him get endorsement deals and most importantly, they are excellent together on the field. Metcalf has displayed his fearless mentality. Prior to him being drafted, everyone was critical of his three-cone drill in the NFL combine. Luckily for us, he fell in the draft and now we are enjoying proving everyone wrong. What impresses me the most about DK, is his willingness to learn.
Metcalf has mentioned on numerous occasions how he admires his quarterbacks’ mentality and his calmness in the midst of chaos. Metcalf also wants to expand upon his game; not just his route running and catching ability, but his run blocking. Metcalf has shown defenders he is not afraid to block and get physical. He does not back down from anything or anyone and he touched upon that last night after the game.
In Week 2 against the New England Patriots, DK Metcalf did not back down from the challenge of Stephon Gilmore. He attacked him all night and even got into an altercation with him. Last night, Metcalf had 2 receptions on 4th down, one being the game-winning touchdown. Love the relentless mentality from this young kid.
