Seahawks Sign D.K. Metcalf

The Seahawks have officially signed second-round pick D.K. Metcalf, according to a team announcement. Per the terms of his slot, Metcalf will earn roughly $4.6MM over the course of his four-year deal. 

Metcalf has drawn national attention for his physique, but the Seahawks see him as more than just a 6’3″ mass of muscles. The Ole Miss product was widely projected to be a first-round pick this year, but the Seahawks managed to snag him at the end of the second round after a trade up with the Patriots.

Metcalf’s skill set was a hotly debated topic in the draft community, with his college production and agility numbers paling in comparison to his physique and speed-strength combination. Ultimately, he was the ninth wide receiver selected in the 2019 draft.

As a freshman, Metcalf caught 39 passes for 646 yards and seven touchdowns. All turned out to be career-best marks, with A.J. Brown having led the Rebels in receiving last season. Metcalf finished as Ole Miss’ third-leading receiver in 2018, despite appearing in only seven games.

The Seahawks now have ten of their eleven draft picks officially in the fold – only third-round linebacker Cody Barton remains unsigned.

    Workout warrior. If you can’t dominate college with your speed and strength the pros won’t be impressed by it either

    The kid was a redshirt sophomore who in his 2nd full season had 569 Receiving Yards and 5 TD in 7 Games who was playing in the SEC.

    I’m not saying he is going to be a stud out of the gates but I don’t think any receiver in this class has a higher “ceiling” and he now has the best deep ball throwing quarterback in the NFL throwing to him.

      Ok so he put up those stats, but he also had some pretty good help. It’s not as if he was the lead dog

      And I’d love to know how you concluded no WR has a higher ceiling? Just because of his build?
