6 months agoThe Seattle Seahawks, known for trading down in the NFL draft to acquire more picks, flipped the script and traded back into the second round in order to draft the free-falling D.K. Metcalf, who some had mocked as high as No. 9 overall but who Seattle snagged at No. 64. Metcalf is a prototypical X-receiver with absolutely freakish athletic ability, which was on full display at the combine. He ran a 4.33 in the 40-yard dash and stands an imposing six-foot-three and 228 pounds. Scouts were concerned about his limited route-running, but coach Pete Carroll has made it exceptionally clear that that is not a concern of theirs. Plus, Metcalf has been working out with wide receiver coaches this offseason, and looked outstanding in Seattle’s rookie minicamp. With Doug Baldwin’s retirement, Metcalf is expected to step into Seattle’s No. 2 receiver role, and is an immediate deep threat with quarterback Russell Wilson’s strong, accurate arm giving Metcalf even more fantasy value. Seattle is a run-first offense, but Metcalf has the tools to be an absolute weapon in fantasy circles, particularly best-ball formats. He has the tools to be an immediate contributor in most fantasy formats though, and he should be considered near the end of drafts.--Andy Patton - RotoBaller
