D.K. Metcalf had a pretty incredible day at the NFL Combine, coming at or near the top of almost every category.
The 6-foot-3, 228 pound physical specimen posted a 4.33 40 yard dash, a 40-inch vertical jump, and put up 27 reps on the bench press. That is on top of the viral notoriety that Metcalf has garnered for his physique.
The Ole Miss product is absolutely ripped. A picture of him made the rounds on social media a few weeks ago.

That was followed by the news that he has less than two-percent body fat.
ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. was already high on D.K. Metcalf, and thinks this performance helped solidify him as a potential top 10 pick.
Kiper had him at No. 8 in a recent mock draft. Today, he updated his evaluation of Metcalf.

Kiper mentions the neck surgery, which could be the biggest hangup for teams come draft time.
The injury cost him most of the 2018 season. He was off to a great start, with 26 catches for 569 yards and five touchdowns through seven games.
In 2017, Metcalf caught 39 passes for 646 yards and sevens cores.
As far as potential Top 10 picks go, he is relatively unproven on the field, but the measurables are off the charts.
