DK Metcalf can take another step forward on the path to stardom in 2020

Let’s not get it twisted; the Seahawks handled DK Metcalf’s transition from college to the NFL wonderfully.

As a prospect, Metcalf was slated for the system he played in and strictly lining up on the left side, and received unkind comparisons to busts such as Kevin White. Despite the characteristics shared between Metcalf and several high-profile busts, the rookie phenom quickly put to rest any concern around his future as an NFL player. Playing into his existing strengths, Seattle enabled Metcalf to find immediate success. The large majority of Metcalf’s routes were those he excelled at in college but as the season progressed, curls and fades began to appear more often as Metcalf developed as a possession receiver.
