D.K. Metcalf isn't the highest-ranked receiver on Matt Miller's Big Board, but the Ole Miss redshirt sophomore has the most potential of any receiver in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Metcalf is a former four-star recruit and 10th-ranked receiver in the 2016 class. He scored two touchdowns on his first two collegiate catches as a true freshman but broke his foot in the second game of the season, forcing a medical redshirt. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound returned with 39 receptions for 646 yards (16.6 yards per reception) and seven touchdowns during an All-SEC 2017 season and was on his way to a 1,000-yard 2018 season before suffering a season-ending neck injury in mid-October.
Metcalf declared for the 2019 draft in late November and is expected to push for a first-round selection. He's the No. 2 receiver on Miller's updated Big Board, only behind Arizona State's N'Keal Narry, but has the most potential of any 2019 receiver, Miller says. Metcalf is the No. 32 overall prospect.
