A pair of wide receivers put on a show this week from the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Ole Miss wideout D.K. Metcalf was the main attraction. Showing up looking like he hasn't had a carb in a decade while being able to clean and press a submarine. Metcalf's performance matched his mind-boggling appearance. The 6-foot-3, 228-pounder with 1.6-percent body fat ran a 4.33 40-yard dash, dominated 27 bench press reps, and leaped 40.5 inches.
Then there is Arizona State receiver N'Keal Harry who made a strong case for himself this week. Harry matched Metcalf on the bench with 27 reps, jumped 38.5 inches for his vertical and delivered a strong 4.54, 40 time.
The 40-yard dash was key in many analysts point of view. If Harry could show speed to match with his size, athleticism and what he put on film while playing for the Sun Devils, then he should be good for a first round selection.
Harry caught 73 balls for 1,088 yards and nine touchdowns during his junior season in Tempe. He would become the first Sun Devil drafted in the first round since safety Damarious Randall in 2015 and first offensive player drafted that high since offensive lineman Levi Jones in 2002. Harry would be the skill position player since Todd Heap in 2001 to go in round one.
