Ole Miss redshirt sophomore WR D.K. Metcalf announced Friday that he will forego his final two seasons of eligibility and enter the 2019 NFL Draft
Metcalf (6'4/230) has been out of the lineup since mid-October due to a neck injury, which robbed Ole Miss of one of its best playmakers on the offensive side of the ball. The redshirt sophomore wideout caught 26 passes for 569 yards and five touchdowns in 2018. Given the fact that injuries have cut two of his seasons short (medical redshirt in 2016 due to a broken foot), Metcalf's medical reports will likely have a significant impact on how high he can go in the draft.

Ole Miss junior WR D.K. Metcalf will miss the remainder of the season with a neck injury.

Metcalf injured his neck in the second quarter of Saturday's win over Arkansas. At the time, it was hoped that the injury was a minor neck strain. The news the Rebels got back from doctors was decidedly worse. HC Matt Luke declined to elaborate, but did say the injury will likely require surgery but that it won't threaten Metcalf's availability beyond this season. Such unfortunate news. Metcalf was in the middle of the breakout campaign we'd all hoped for, ranking eighth nationally in yards per catch (21.9) with a 26-569-5 line. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder is the consensus top WR in the 2019 NFL Draft class according to The Draft Network's team of analysts. With only 67 career catches, it'll be interesting to see if Metcalf declares over the winter, or if this injury will be enough to convince him to return to Oxford.

Ole Miss junior WR D.K. Metcalf exited Saturday's 37-33 win over Arkansas with a neck strain.

Metcalf was getting some reps with the special teams unit when the injury occurred. Gridiron Now's Brad Logan reported that Metcalf "appeared to be in a lot of pain" in the medical tent. Metcalf had one catch for 49 yards prior to exiting. His status is in doubt for next week and his participation in practice will be something to monitor.
Oct 14 - 9:18 AM

Ole Miss junior WR D.K. Metcalf caught five passes for 102 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 38-17 win over Kent State.

Metcalf made an unbelievable one-handed catch on his 41-yard touchdown. The ball was slightly overthrown but Metcalf gained separation at the last second, and snagged the ball with one hand. He continues to dominate with touchdowns in four straight games and no less than 81 yards receiving. If Metcalf continues to play at this level the rest of the season we could be hearing his name called really early in the 2019 draft.

Ole Miss junior WR D.K. Metcalf caught two passes for 92 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 62-7 loss to Alabama.

Metcalf (6'4/230) came through with a 76-yard touchdown grab on the first offensive play of the game, but he was essentially erased from the game from that point on -- same could be said for Ole Miss as a team in this one. For the campaign to date, Metcalf is the owner of a 13-266-3 receiving line. He'll look to add to those totals against Kent State in Week 4.
Sep 15 - 10:59 PM

Ole Miss junior WR D.K. Metcalf recorded seven catches for 93 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 76-41 win over Southern Illinois.

Metcalf was part of the trio of receivers to explode in this one alongside A.J. Brown (8/158/2) and Braylon Sanders (4/133/1). Metcalf's touchdown came from five yards out in the third quarter when the game was still very close. He's drawn plenty of draft hype prior to the season but has been outperformed by fellow WR A.J. Brown so far. Next week's matchup against Alabama will be an interesting litmus test for the entire offense, and especially for a draft prospect like Metcalf.
Sep 8 - 8:23 PM

The Draft Network's Trevor Sikkema projects Ole Miss junior WR D.K. Metcalf to be the first receiver selected in the 2019 draft.

Sikkema projects him to be selected at pick No. 13 and said "Fellow Rebels wide receiver A.J. Brown is the one getting most of the hype, but at 6-foot-4, 225 pounds, Metcalf has better size and even has some better plays than Brown, though not as much production yet, as Metcalf is just a redshirt sophomore." He also projects another receiver to go off the board shortly afterwards in Miami wideout Ahmmon Richards. Metcalf has a really high ceiling as an intriguing prospect with good physical attributes. As long as he can match that with production this season he should have a good opportunity to be drafted fairly high.

Pro Football Focus's Curtis Patrick lists Ole Miss junior WR D.k. Metcalf as one of the top developmental prospects in the SEC.

Most of the attention goes to A.J. Brown on the Rebels -- and for good reason, he's the better prospect -- but Metcalf (6'4/225) has NFL potential himself. Nine of his 41 catches over the last two years have gone for touchdowns, and he seemed to get stronger as the season went on in 2017. As Patrick summarizes: "If his improvement arc continues, Metcalf should post bigger numbers in 2018 while defenses are busy trying to contain Brown."
Jul 13 - 8:57 PM

Ole Miss sophomore WR D.K. Metcalf caught five passes for 83 yards with two touchdowns in Saturday's 37-34 victory over Kentucky.

Metcalf (6'4/225) has had back-to-back big weeks for the Rebels, and was able to find the end zone twice for Ole Miss on Saturday. He saved his best for the end of the game, when he reaches over a Wildcat defender and pulled in a 7-yard touchdown with just five seconds left to give the Rebels the 37-34 victory. It's been a very disappointing year in Oxford, but Metcalf has the potential to become a star. Ole Miss takes on Louisiana Lafayette next week.

Ole Miss sophomore WR D.K. Metcalf caught three passes for 125 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-16 loss to Cal.

Sprinting through the secondary with just over two minutes gone in the second quarter, Metcalf caught a perfectly-thrown 71-yard touchdown bomb from QB Shea Patterson, one which the 6-foot-3, 224-pounder was able to catch without losing any speed. That would be the final score of the game for the Rebs, who were shut out the rest of the way. It was a shaky offensive performance on the whole for Ole Miss after a quick start and the kind of game that might become commonplace once Metcalf and company hit conference play starting with a Week 5 showdown against Alabama at the end of September. There's plenty of upside in this offense, but it's also a young offense, one which became easily flustered once Cal started to put pressure on Patterson in the second half on Saturday.

Ole Miss sophomore WR D.K. Metcalf broad jumps 11’1" and vertical jumps 37.5 inches.

The 6-foot-3, 224-pounder is a physical marvel. Metcalf power cleans 350, bench presses 330 and boasts a 4.46 forty. A former star hurdler and triple-jumper in high school, D.K. is the son of former Ole Miss and Chicago Bears offensive lineman Terrence Metcalf.

According to the Clarion-Ledger, Ole Miss sophomore WR D.K. Metcalf has a starting job heading into the summer.

Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze said recently that Metcalf possesses "the potential to be a special player." While there will be plenty of balls in the air this fall in the Shea Patterson-led Air Raid-esque offense, first-year OC Phil Longo said the Rebels will probably play six-to-eight receivers a game. If he sticks to that, it may depress the numbers of a starter like Metcalf.

Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze said that sophomore WR D.K. Metcalf possesses "the potential to be a special player."

"He’s a basketball player that understands positioning in those tight quarters for red-zone throws and obviously has great strength, skills and size," Freeze said of the 6-foot-4, 210-pounder. The former four-star recruit was sidelined by a broken foot in the second week of the 2016 season, with that injury ultimately costing him the remainder of that campaign. This spring, he practiced without any pain or discomfort.'s Ben Garrett calls Meetcalf "easily the most physically imposing wide receiver on the Rebels’ roster" and believes that he could potentially develop into a "ball-dominant, physical monster in the mold of Calvin Johnson and Julio Jones." Shea Patterson should have fun with this one in 2017, assuming Metcalf can maintain his health.

Ole Miss sophomore WR D.K. Metcalf (foot) has been practicing without pain this spring.

Metcalf was sidelined for the 2016 campaign with a broken foot suffered against Wofford in the second game of the season. "I didn’t look at the negative aspect of it," said the 6-foot-4, 210-pounder. "I really looked at it as a time to grow and perfect my mental game." Metcalf was a four-star recruit for the 2016 cycle (ESPN ranked him as their No. 242 prospect) and could emerge as one of the favored targets for super-soph QB Shea Patterson during the coming campaign. Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze said this spring that Metcalf has "got the potential to be a special player."

Ole Miss freshman WR D.K. Metcalf broke his foot in Saturday's win over Wofford.

Per HC Hugh Freeze, Metcalf will likely take a redshirt for this season. The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder caught a pair of touchdowns in the season-opening loss to Florida State and had logged one catch for 10 yards prior to breaking his hoof on Saturday. He ranked as ESPN 300's No. 242 overall prospect for the 2016 cycle.
