D.K. Metcalf Stats
Just look at Metcalf's body type above and you can understand why he's such an enticing draft pick. He's the size of a linebacker and has the athletic ability to torch any cornerback. Having said that, injuries are an issue for Metcalf.

He missed the entire 2016 season with a broken foot and didn't have the 2018 many expected. Metcalf suffered a neck injury during a game in October that required surgery, which limited him to seven games. In those games, he showed off his dominance with 26 catches for 569 yards and five scores. His overall stats aren't overly impressive, but watching him on the field shows why he's considered by many to be the top wideout in this class.

D.K. Metcalf NFL Mock Draft Prediction
Buffalo Bills, Oakland Raiders
Metcalf may have the widest draft range out of any prospect. Some have him going as early as the Bills at nine overall. Others have him potentially slipping out of the first round. It's hard to imagine him moving towards the second day, especially with his fit in Buffalo. This team has their quarterback of the future in Josh Allen, who has a cannon for an arm. It's time to fit him with a receiver who can match him in explosiveness.
If he does fall to the bottom of the first round, don't be surprised if the Raiders scoop him up. They traded away Amari Cooper and swung and missed on additions like Martavis Bryant and Jordy Nelson. They have larger needs, but If they add Metcalf, it could be the piece to give them a high-powered passing game once again.
