D.K. Metcalf met with Buffalo Bills at NFL Combine

New, comments

If this receiver is on the board when the Bills pick, he could be the best option.

The Buffalo Bills have met with top receiver prospect D.K. Metcalf at the NFL Combine, the player shared with reporters. Lucas Oil Stadium buzzed on Saturday as the workout warrior delivered viewers a spectacle in each phase. After revealing a body sculpted from marble the previous day, the 6’3” 228 lb receiver blew away his competition in the timed drills on the day. Metcalf ran an absolutely blazing 4.33 forty-yard dash that was only bested by speedsters Parris Campbell and Andy Isabella. His 40.5” vertical was only bested by two receivers (Miles Boykin and Emanuel Hall), and his 11’2” broad jump ranked fifth. Metcalf, healthy following a season-ending neck injury, proved that he could be an elite vertical threat in the NFL. Prior to his injury, Metcalf had 26 catches for 569 yards and five touchdowns in seven games from his redshirt sophomore year.

The Bills have receivers Robert Foster, Zay Jones, Isaiah McKenzie, Ray-Ray McCloud, Victor Bolden, and Cam Phillips returning from last year’s team. That group of six combined for ten receiving touchdowns and 1417 receiving yards last year. The offense needs playmakers in the worst way, and Metcalf could be the best option in the draft.
