D.K. Metcalf and his insane build took the internet and NFL community by storm earlier this year after shirtless photos from one of the former Ole Miss wide receiver's workouts hit Twitter.
But Metcalf's confidence in his body may not be what many have assumed it is, after he revealed how he feels about taking his shirt off.
Metcalf's 2019 NFL Draft stock also took quite a positive turn following all of the buzz and publicity surrounding his 6-foot-4, 228-pound frame and his potential as an NFL wide receiver. Mel Kiper Jr.'s second 2019 mock draft even boosted Metcalf from outside the first round to a Top-10 selection when it was released on Feb. 18, 2019.
Metcalf certainly didn't perform as well at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine as most were expecting. His 3-cone drill and 20-yard shuttle times were among the worst for all wideouts in this year's class, as Tom Brady posted faster times in both categories during his NFL Combine performances.
Metcalf has serious potential at the next level due to his freakish athleticism, but the linebacker-sized wideout could also end up as a hype-train bust. With all of the buzz around his body taking precedence over his underwhelming stats in college, we will have to wait and see how Metcalf turns out.
