However, Hawks fans can now put those memories in the past because in a very short period of time there will be real news on which to report and fake football to watch.All the offseason debate about which of the 73 wide receivers Seattle drafted and signed will step up and take the spot Doug Baldwin vacated that has driven you all mad since April is about to get turned up to 11. Or, knowing this fanbase, it's possible it gets cranked all the way up to 12.In any case, as DK Metcalf, Gary Jennings, John Ursua, Keenan Reynolds, Terry Wright, Jazz Ferguson, Malik Turner, Caleb Scott and Amara Darboh duke it out for roster spots behind Tyler Lockett and David Moore, it’s no longer the doldrums of the offseason, as rookies report to camp today. Wednesday will be no more than check in, and it’s more of a period for rookies to get adjusted before the veterans report next week Ethan Pocic Color Rush Jersey , with training camp officially getting started in full on Thursday the 25th. So, while the offseason has been long and boring, the arrival of actual football news to read and something resembling professional football to watch is just weeks away!

Then they put up with the piece about those who were disappointing, but definitely a step ahead of those at the bottom. Well, in the words of Bruce Buffer, “It’s time.” Or, as fans of the song “In My Mind” might say, “This is what we’re waiting for.”Since I know all y’all are here for the hype, I’m going to keep this short and sweet and get right into the comps. Yeah, that’s the good stuffPlayerHeightWt40YDVerticalBenchRepsBroad Jump3ConeShuttlePlayerHeightWt40YDVerticalBenchRepsBroad Jump3ConeShuttleOne quick note about these comps is a comment that has been made regarding the fact that Metcalf is an outlier for certain of these measurements, which is absolutely the case. Specifically, his 27 bench press reps ties him with the highest for any wide receiver at the Combine this millennium. However, there is an interesting common thread among all four wide receivers who hit 27 reps. First of all Shaquill Griffin Color Rush Jersey , Metcalf was obviously rehabbing following the surgery he had on his neck that caused him to miss the second half of the 2018 seasons. The other three players who hit 27 reps are N’Keal Harry, Greg Little and Brooks Foster. Harry skipped his team’s bowl game in order to avoid any injury risk on the field after the regular season had concluded. Little was declared ineligible by the NCAA for his senior season and sat out the entire 2010 campaign. and Foster suffered a quad injury in the regular season finale and missed his team’s bowl game. In addition, the only other wide receiver to put up 25 or more reps at the combine since 2000 is T.J. Moe of Missouri, whose 2012 Tigers went 5-7 and didn’t make a bowl game. In short, every receiver that has done 25 or more reps on the bench press at the combine this century has not practiced with their college team after Thanksgiving. Further, two of the four who hit the top mark of 27 did not practice with their team after mid-October. Thus, perhaps a wide receiver hitting the top mark on the bench press is an indication that the receiver didn’t see their strength and muscle mass sapped by the long period of practices leading up to a bowl game. For an example of this, one need look no further than the Seahawks own Jacob Martin, who lost 25 pounds over the course of the 2018 season, dropping from the mid-240s to 220 by the end of the year according to head coach Pete Carroll earlier this spring. Whether this idea, which is nothing more than an idea at this point, has any validity I don’t know. However, we know that players lose muscle mass during the grind of a long season and games, while Metcalf last suited up for Ole Miss on October 13 before suffering the season-ending neck injury. Thus, this idea would need to be converted into a testable hypothesis before it even gets granted any kind of status beyond just the idea that it might be something to look into at some point in the future. In any case, let’s quit talking about the bench press and skipping bowl games and being declared ineligible by the NCAA and get back to what we came here for Delano Hill Color Rush Jersey , how the best receivers who athletically and physically resemble Metcalf performed in the NFL. Well, well, well. How do you like them apples? PlayerCareer YardsBest seasonDraft PositionPlayerCareer YardsBest seasonDraft PositionThose top three are highly impressive and need no explanation. Justin Gage in fourth on the list might seem a little out of place since he ended his career with fewer yards than Michael Floyd, who was named to the bad list published Sunday. However, Floyd was a first round pick who has battled alcohol issues since before he was ever selected with the 13th overall selection in the draft, and so the fact that Gage was a fifth round pick changes the evaluation. In addition, while it might be kind of surprising to see Donte Moncrief included on this list, he remains young, and is set to play the 2019 season in the pass happy offense of the Pittsburgh Steelers at just 26 years of age. Thus, there would seem to be significant potential for Moncrief to materially add to his totals over the next five or six years. This could be especially true if Ben Roethlisberger can continue to play well, as he’s spent the last two seasons catching passes from the likes of Blake Bortles and Jacoby Brissett. So, wrapping up the three part look at the athletic comps for Metcalf, the potential outcomes are all over the board. Thus, now that the range of potential outcomes has been mapped, it’s possible to begin looking at more predictive factors and projecting how he might perform in the NFL based on the production he posted in college.
