Metcalf's broken foot ended his true freshman season after just two games. However, he shined in his redshirt year in 2017, catching 39 passes averaging 16 yards per reception with seven TDs.
I have enjoyed my time at Ole Miss, gaining brothers and a family, now it’s time for me to pursue my dreams of playing in the NFL. I want to thank the University, my coaches, and teammates, but most importantly my family for helping me through this process. #HottyToddy #GodsPlan— DK Metcalf (@dkmetcalf14) November 23, 2018

Metcalf ended up finishing with five TDs in seven games, with 26 catches and an average of 21 yards per catch. Metcalf's undeniable skills make this draft an extremely exciting one for receiver-needy teams that posses first round picks.
