If there was any doubt in anybody's mind that DK Metcalf is an athletic freak of nature, those doubts were put to rest before the Seattle Seahawks' Week 14 matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.

The rookie wideout's unreal athleticism was on full display during pregame warmups Sunday night, wowing the L.A. crowd - and breaking the internet - with a leaping one-handed grab, clearing the goal post, that seemed too crazy to be real.

I don't know about you, but with ups like that, I think Seattle may want to consider throwing Metcalf passes in that spot during games going forward.

The Ole Miss product continued to impress after warmups, despite dealing with Jalen Ramsey for much of the night, leading the Seahawks in receiving with six catches for 78 yards on the night.

Metcalf is in the midst of a solid rookie year (50 catches, 783 yards and five touchdowns) and if he continues to develop at his current pace, the 21-year-old's superstar potential could be higher than his vertical jump, which measured 40.5 inches at the NFL Combine.
