DK Metcalf Declares for Draft



One of the most intriguing wide receiver prospects in the country is leaving Ole Miss for the NFL draft. Redshirt sophomore D.K. Metcalf told Yahoo Sports in a telephone interview on Friday he’s declaring for the draft.

Metcalf had generated considerable buzz as a high-end prospect before a neck injury ended his season in October. He told Yahoo Sports that he’s recovered to where he’ll be cleared to fully participate in all football activities on Jan. 22 and will fully take part in the NFL draft process and team workouts.

“I had a month to weigh my options,” Metcalf said, referring to his October injury, in a phone interview on Friday. “I prayed to God and told Him to put the right decision in me. After meeting with Coach [Matt] Luke, they did everything they could to give me the right information, and I made my choice.”

Metcalf earned All-SEC Freshman honors in 2017 after catching seven touchdowns and averaging 16.6 yards per catch. (A broken foot cut short his true freshman season after just two games in 2016). He was on pace for a monster season in 2018, as he’d caught five touchdowns in seven games, before the injury occurred in the first quarter of Ole Miss’game at Arkansas on Oct. 13. He finished this season with 569 receiving yards and eye-popping 21.9 average yards per catch.

Thank you DK, go get paid with AJ

If he’s going then they’re all going. He was the only one we had with any real shot at staying

Good luck kid. I hope you make a bunch of money

Good for him, sticking around in our wreck of a program likely presents way more risk than reward for his draft stock

He’ll be a combine freak (assuming he gets an invite)
